The Subway restaurant, located at 486 Jericho Turnpike in Mineola, was robbed Sunday evening, Jan. 6 at 7:10 p.m. after two masked men entered the restaurant, according to police.
Police said one of the masked men displayed a handgun and the two men made off with $700 from the cash register and a cell phone from an employee who was working at the time.
According to store owner Rakesh Kumar, who has owned the store for a year, a lot of the stores in the area are closed at around that time on a Sunday evening. Subway closed at 8 p.m.
"It gets dark usually after 6 p.m. and it's scary at that time," he said.
