Auburn police officers are on the lookout for a man who robbed Jreck Subs on Genesee Street on Monday.

Authorities were dispatched at 8:56 p.m. to the sub shop at 251 Genesee St., according to the Auburn Police Department. Surveillance video from inside Jreck Subs shows a male — wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, a hat and jeans — at the front counter of the shop with a knife.

Police said the man grabbed the knife from behind the counter while the store clerk was distracted. The suspect then approached the clerk, according to APD, and demanded money.
