AKRON -- Police have posted surveillance video on YouTube that shows a man robbing a local Subway restaurant in hopes somebody may be able to help identify the suspect.

Footage (watch below) from the June 25 incident inside the restaurant in the 900 block of E. Tallmadge Avenue shows the suspect, believed to be 18-22 years old, wearing a striped, hooded sweatshirt.

During the robbery, police say the suspect showed an employee a handgun that he was concealing in his waistband.

The cashier then opens the register and gives the suspect an undisclosed amount of cash.

The unidentified man then fled the restaurant.

Police say the suspect was described as having a "noticeable bump" on his nose and either a tattoo or birthmark under his left eye.

Anybody with information is asked to contact Akron Police at 330-375-2490. Tips can also be left at
