Tacoma police are trying to identify a man suspected of trying to rob a sandwich shop at gunpoint last month.
The suspect went into the Subway at South 84th and South Hosmer streets about 10:25 p.m. April 24. He walked up to the counter and ordered a sandwich. He then presented a note that demanded cash and indicated he had a gun, police reported.
When the employee refused to hand over any cash, the suspect gestured that he had a gun. He then left, police said.
The suspect was described as a light-skinned black man, about 20 years old and about 5 feet 10 with a thin build. He wore a gray hooded sweatshirt with large red and white lettering across the chest, black basketball shorts and carried a black backpack, police reported.
