The Subway sandwich shop in the 7500 block of Garth Road was robbed about 8:20 p.m. Saturday.

Reportedly a black man in his mid-20s entered the business with a blue bandana over his face. He approached an employee, pointed a handgun at the employee and demanded all of the money from the register and safe. 

The employee complied and the robber fled the area on foot, according to Baytown police spokesman Lt. Steve Dorris.

Unreal estate agent

A man reported to police Friday that he received an email he believed to be from his real estate agent instructing him to wire money to an account to cover closing costs for a house he is buying.

His agent said she had not sent the email or received the money.
