Authorities are investigating an armed robbery at a Leavenworth sandwich shop, a police spokesman said.

The incident was reported at 4:27 p.m. Monday at the Subway restaurant at 1700 10th Ave. No injuries were reported.

A man reportedly entered the restaurant carrying a handgun and wearing pantyhose over his face.

The suspect demanded money from an employee, who handed the suspect about $125.

“The suspect left out through the back,” said Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

The suspect drove away from the scene. The vehicle may have been a gray Ford Taurus.

It is believed the vehicle had been parked in an alley behind the business.

There was only one employee in the business at the time. There was one customer, who was in the restroom at the time of the robbery, Nicodemus said.

The suspect was described as a thin black man who is about 5 feet, 5 inches tall. He had shoulder length hair braids. He wore blue jeans and a long-sleeved gray sweater with a white T-shirt underneath.
