HAMMOND — A Subway restaurant was robbed at gunpoint Saturday, police said.
Hammond police responded to the Subway at 7518 Calumet Ave. about 8:30 p.m. after a man entered the restaurant, displayed a handgun and told an employee to empty the register, Lt. Richard Hoyda said.
The man left on foot in an unknown direction with an undetermined amount of cash, he said. No injuries were reported.
The man was wearing a gray hoodie sweatshirt, black baseball hat, dark-colored jeans, dark-colored shoes, gloves on his hands and some type of mask covering his face, police said.
