A hammer-wielding man made off with an undetermined amount of cash from the Subway restaurant at 903 Post Road E. on Tuesday night, Westport police Sgt. David Farrell said in a statement.
At about 7:40 p.m., a man entered the restaurant and confronted the clerks. After allegedly holding the hammer over his head in a threatening manner, the suspect demanded cash, then on foot in an unknown direction.
Neither clerk was injured in the robbery. Patrol units and a police dog searched the area with no results.
The suspect was described as a white man between 40 and 50 years old, with long blond hair and a blond mustache. He was 6 feet tall and was last seen wearing an open plaid red jacket with a light colored hood, a white T-shirt and blue jeans. Anyone with information should call the Westport Police Department at 203-341-6000 or the Detective Bureau at 203-341-6082.
