Pair of robbers hold up Jessup sandwich shop


Two men robbed a Jessup sandwich shop in Columbia Junction Plaza on Sunday by convincing the clerk that one of them had a gun in his sweat shirt, police said.

About 10:30 p.m., two men entered the Subway in the 8600 block of U.S. 1, approached the register and demanded money, police said.

One of the men showed a bulge in his sweat shirt to imply he was armed, but neither of the men ever displayed a weapon, police said.

An employee turned over $79 to the robbers, who then ran from the store, police said.

The suspects were described as a 5-foot-10 white male, about 18 years old, wearing a blue, hooded sweat shirt and tan pants, and a 5-foot-10 black male, about 18, with a mustache, a gold cap on one tooth and a blue bandanna around his forehead, police said.
