SUWANEE, Ga. — Deputies responded to a silent holdup alarm May 9 at the Subway restaurant on McGinnis Ferry Road. 

The female manager informed the deputy that three men had entered the store and purchased food. One of the men approached the front counter demanding a refund because the meat tasted strange. A male employee refused to issue a refund but told the suspect that a substitute sandwich would be made. The suspect became upset and continued to argue with the owner while his two companions left the restaurant. 

After not receiving a refund, the suspect grabbed cash from the tip jar before quickly fleeing the store and running toward the Publix nearby. There was $50-60 in cash taken from the jar. The other two males followed him in a truck.

The owner stated that the suspect is a black male in his early to middle 30s. He had a beard and was wearing all black. No video footage of the incident could be recovered. A front license plate of the suspect vehicle was recorded.
