A Subway employee was struck in the face after trying multiple times to stop an unidentified robber from getting away, Enon police said today in a release.

The robber walked into the store while employees were busy in the back; he went around the counter and took money out of an open safe drawer, according to the release.

An employee noticed what was happening and tried to stop the man, but the robber struck him in the face, which knocked his glasses off, and the robber got away, according to the release.

Police said the robber did not display a weapon. He was described as white, medium build, 5-feet-11 and weighing 180 to 210 pounds. He was last seen wearing a green hooded shirt, faded blue jeans, dark blue baseball cap and dark-colored work boots, according to the release.
