The Subway restaurant on Patetown Road was reportedly robbed Tuesday night by a man who stole a small amount of money, according to a police report.

A 17-year-old female clerk told police at 9:23 p.m. that she had been robbed a few minutes earlier by a black man wearing a hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.

The man, who was not described further in the report, took the cash register drawer and bills from the tip jar, then fled from the business headed west on Patetown Road, police said.

The suspect was wearing dark-colored jeans, a hooded jacked and a dark colored mask over his face.

The Sheriff's Office reported a robbery with similar circumstances, at the Dollar General on U.S. 13 North.
