Subway Restaurant Employee Beaten by 3 Robbers: Police

Police in Stamford, Connecticut are seeking the public's assistance in identifying robbery suspects caught on surveillance cameras assaulting a restaurant worker.

Two men tried to rob a Subway restaurant on East Main Street on Dec. 28 at 9:05 p.m., beating an employee, according to Stamford police. A third person stayed outside as a lookout, police said.

Video surveillance police released on YouTube shows one of the robbers hop over a gate to get behind the counter, walking across the room and immediately knocking the person to the ground by striking the person working in the face.

The individual then continually pummeled the employee in the head as the victim tried to get up. The victim was able to run across the room, but the robber pulled him and threw him back before making a getaway.

After a quick sweep of the cash register area, both robbers fled from the sandwich store.

Both suspects were dressed in dark clothing and had hoods on. The robber who attacked the employee was wearing pink gloves.

Stamford police ask anyone with information to call the detective bureau at 203-977-4417.
