The suspect in that robbery is described as white, in his late 20's to early 30's, about 5'9"-6'0" tall, with a reddish brown beard and a longer mustache.

About two hours later on the other side of town, police responded to another robbery at the Subway on N. Nevada. Police say in this robbery a handgun was pulled by the suspect as he grabbed cash from the till and ran off. Police attempted a K-9 track on the suspect, but were unsuccessful.

 The suspect in this robbery is described as being white and wearing a black jacket, a black bandana, and a black and white baseball hat.

 Anyone with information on either of these robberies is asked to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
