Man held in pair of Westmoreland robberies

Tuesday, Dec. 25, 2012, 7:40 p.m.
 

A suspect in two robberies was being held in the Westmoreland County jail.

About 8 p.m. Sunday, a man wearing a mask and brandishing a butcher knife entered the Subway restaurant on Route 981 in Unity, according to a news release by state police at Greensburg.

He demanded the cash register be opened and grabbed the money before fleeing on foot, according to police.

The man was arrested Monday in connection with a second robbery, but no charges have been filed in either case, and no details have been released about the second incident.
