The man working at the Subway that night doesn't want his name revealed. He said his female co-worker saw it coming.
"She said 'Oh we're going to get robbed we're going to get robbed.' Then she walked behind the door the emergency door, and she went out. I was by myself, and one of the guys he jumped over the counter and said open the register and give me the money," said the man.
Once they about $500 in cash, the robbers calmly walk out.
Police have only named one of the suspects involved in this armed robbery, 23-year-old Stephon Patterson.
Three weeks before the incident, Patterson had been arrested in Miami for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in a domestic violence case.
