Durham Police are looking for a lone suspect at a subway branch on Rossland and Stevenson Streets around 4:45 p.m. Police said the suspect made a purchase, then pulled a knife and asked for cash.

The clerk closed the register and the suspect made another threat before attacking the worker, police said.

“The employee was either unable or unwilling to open the register and the suspect attacked the employee,” the police said in a press release. “The suspect then fled on foot.”
