The tables quickly turned for a armed robbery suspect in Lancaster City after a sub shop employee pulls out a gun and stops the robber in his tracks. The suspect entered Speed’s Sub Shop along the 300 block of East King Street around 10 p.m. on Friday night. He approached the employee behind the counter –told him he had a gun and demanded money.

Instead of complying–the employee pulled out his own gun and pointed it at the suspect. The robber was last seen fleeing the store empty handed.

Police say the suspect was a white male, approx. 20 years old and about 5’11” tall. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and jeans.
