MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) — An order for a foot-long at a Miami Beach Subway restaurant quickly turned into a robbery Tuesday morning.

It all happened at the restaurant located at 7101 Collins Avenue.

Employee Brenda Maldonado, who was inside the restaurant at the time, said a man placed an order for a foot-long sandwich combo.

Forget cash or credit this guy used the threat of violence to pay for his purchase. Once he got the sandwich, he allegedly pulled out a gun and demanded money from Maldonado.

“He buy one foot-long Teriyaki like a regular customer and then when he pays, he take out a gun and put it in the front of my partner and give me the money in the register and took out everything,” said Subway employee Michael Morales.

The robber was able to take off with the sandwich, chips, coke and at least $200 in cash.  Maldona said the robber ran toward the beach just behind the shop.

Maldonado said she’s been working at the restaurant for four years. Her last day is Friday.

Her impending departure was planned long before the armed robbery but the timing couldn’t be better as she now said she’s scared to return to work there.

“Now, it’s nervous now,” said Maldonado.

“My partner is very scared you know,” said Morales. .

Anyone with information is urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471- TIPS.
