Baltimore City Police and detectives from the Commercial Robbery Office were at Subway on the corner of St. Paul and 33rd Streets Friday night to investigate a robbery at the restaurant. Detective Vernon Davis, of the Baltimore CIty Police Department Office of Communications confirmed that it was indeed a robbery at gunpoint. The original 911 call came at 10:52 p.m. The entrances to Subway were cordoned off and the store closed so employees could be questioned by police.

Ghanshyam Pardsa, a manager at the Subway, gave a description of the individual.

"He was around 35 or 40, African-American," Pardsa said. "He came in with a gun and asked for cash -- of course we gave it to him."

Pardsa said he was unsure exactly how much money the restaurant lost.

Steven Recupero, a Baltimore City police officer on patrol duty at the intersection of 33rd and St. Paul Streets early Saturday morning, said that law enforcement would continue to monitor the area.

"You have a lot of pedestrian traffic here, so there's always a higher risk of crime," Recupero said. "And the holidays are coming up, which generally means an increase in thefts and robberies."
