A suspect tied to at least three robberies at Queens eateries in the last month struck again Wednesday night at a Subway restaurant, police said.
Around 9:25 p.m. Wednesday, the man entered a Subway at 205-12 Northern Blvd. in Bayside and went directly behind the counter, police reported. He displayed a knife and demanded that the register be opened before fleeing with $400 in cash.
The suspect’s robbery spree allegedly began on May 11 when police said he robbed a Carvel ice cream location at 103-21 Metropolitan Ave., similarly using a knife before taking $500 from the register’s cash tray.
That incident was followed on May 23 when the suspect allegedly hit a Dunkin' Donuts at 146-36 45th Ave. and fled with $600 before hitting another Dunkin' Donuts two days later at 163-02 Cross Bay Blvd. and taking $776 in cash, police stated.
Besides his fourth robbery in Queens, the suspect may also be connected to 17 other robberies in Long Island, ABC7 reported.
Authorities described the suspect as a black man around 5-foot-9 with a medium build who was last seen wearing a gray hoodie with dark jeans and boots.
