Man robs WPB Subway with AK-47

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office deputies set up a perimeter Tuesday night on 45th Street in West Palm Beach and in Riviera Beach in hopes of catching a man who used an assault rifle to rob a Subway store.

The perimeter was taken down around 10:15 p.m. with the suspect still on the run.

An officer on scene said the suspect used an AK-47 to hold up two employees at the sandwich shop.

Subway employee Courtney Grace said she's just glad to be alive. "I still have my life. For a couple of dollars? See what I'm saying? He didn't get much," said Grace. "How stupid are you? To each their own."

The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
