Police: Man arrested after robbing Subway restaurant in northeast Columbia

Editor's note: A previous version of this story identified the apartment complex as The Links. The standoff occurred at The Greens, which is in the same area.


Columbia police say they have arrested a man on Monday who allegedly robbed a Subway restaurant in the 5600 block of St. Charles Road.

Columbia Police Department Lt. Andy Muscato said the man – whose identity has not been stated – took cash from the restaurant after he pulled out a weapon, but did not clarify what type of weapon was shown. He then went to a nearby apartment complex. No injuries have been reported. Muscato said police were dispatched at 6:04 p.m. and that the man surrendered to police at The Greens apartment complex at 6:48 p.m.

No property damage was reported. Police were still searching the area near the apartment with K-9s at 7:50 p.m.

An ABC 17 News reporter saw at least 10 Columbia police vehicles at the scene for what appeared to be a standoff. The reporter saw police tape put up and heard officers trying to communicate with an individual to surrender. Police tape came down around 7:20 p.m. and residents at the building were allowed to enter their apartments again.
