Students at the University of Toledo have been alerted to a dangerous situation just outside of campus Wednesday morning.
According to the school, Toledo Police responded to a report of an armed robbery at Subway, 1465 Secor Rd. around 10 a.m.
The suspect was said to be armed with a shotgun and fled the store in an unknown direction. He was described by those at the scene as a black male wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black sweat pants, though surveillance images from inside the store show a man in a brown sweatshirt, black pants, black ski mask, and orange construction vest.
According to Toledo Police, all store employees ran to hide inside a cooler when accosted by the suspect. He then fled, without any cash, via a rear door, possibly through a lot at College Drive.
Students are urged by the university to be cautious in the area off the main Bancroft campus.
