Employee with gun foiled sub shop robbery

Posted: Updated:

A robber who claimed to be armed fled a Lancaster sub shop without money when an employee pulled a gun of his own, police said.

Lancaster police said the would-be robber demanded cash from Speed's Sub Shop, at 318 E. King Street, just after 10 p.m. Saturday.

The employee pulled and then pointed his own handgun at the suspect, who immediately fled the store empty handed, police said.

Police continue to look for the robber, who was described as a white man, about 20 years old and approximately 5'11" tall, and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.
