HOUSTON – A man ordered a sandwich before robbing a Subway in northwest Houston on Oct. 20, police said.
The robbery was caught on camera when the man walked into the restaurant at 4:40 p.m. in the 5200 block of Hollister Street. Houston police said he walked up to the sandwich bar and ordered, then told the employee to give him the money from the cash register and not to alert the customers inside.
