Berryville police are investigating a robbery that occurred Monday night at the Subway restaurant —the second restaurant robbery in the city in a six-week span.

Berryville Police Chief Robert Bartos said Thursday that a suspect walked into the Subway on Monday night and demanded money.

Bartos said the suspect did not display a weapon but told store employees that he had a gun.

Bartos said the suspect left with an undetermined amount of cash.

Bartos said police are still investigating a similar incident that occurred on Nov. 14, when a suspect showed a gun to an employee working the drive-through window at the Berryville McDonald’s and demanded cash.

Bartos said police have not determined whether the McDonald’s and Subway robberies are related.
