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.
