Ventura police seek public's help in Subway armed robbery

VENTURA, Calif. - The Ventura Police Department is investigating an armed robbery that occurred at the Subway restaurant located at 2950 Johnson Drive at about 10 p.m. July 26.

Police said two employees were preparing to close the restaurant when two suspects entered the business demanding money. One of the suspects was armed with a gun and pointed it at the employees while demanding money, according to police. He then jumped over the counter.
