Subway robber still at large

A MAN who robbed a Lismore Subway takeaway food store at knife-point on Tuesday night remains at large.

Richmond Local Area Command supervisor Sergeant Andrew Lawrance said at 9.18pm a man entered the Subway store on Ballina Rd and demanded money.

Sgt Lawrance said the man fled the store on foot with a small amount of cash after producing a knife and threatening the three staff, who were preparing to close the business.

"A single male offender entered the store and he allegedly demanded money from staff and allegedly produced a knife," he said.

"The man is described as Caucasian, 170cm to 175cm tall, of medium build, aged in his mid to late twenties with short, light-coloured hair."

"He was wearing a black T-shirt, dark coloured track pants and joggers.

"After staff handed over a sum of cash he fled the store on foot and was last seen running along Ballina Rd in a westerly direction towards the Lismore Workers Club."

No staff were injured.

Sgt Lawrance said police conducted examinations of the crime scene and detectives were interviewing staff.

"Police are conducting further investigations and reviewing CCTV footage of the incident," he said.
