Cumberland County authorities are searching for two men suspected of the armed robbery of a Subway store at 3055 Legion Road.

Investigators said the suspects entered the story at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday, pointed a handgun at a clerk and demanded money from the cash register. They exited through the back door and escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

Investigators believe the same two men, dressed in the same clothes, robbed the store on Jan. 1.

The sheriff's office only released a description of one of the suspects. He is described as a black man, 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing 120 pounds. He was believed to be operating a late model, gray, four-door Buick with tinted windows.

Anyone with information about the robbery or the suspects is asked to contact the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office at 910-323-1500.
