Deputies are seeking help identifying the man behind the armed robbery on Sept. 27 at the Subway in Coronaca.

The man was armed with a handgun and a plastic bag to stash money in when he held up the Subway at 103 Highway 246 North, according to a news release sent Wednesday afternoon by the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office. He ordered employees to put the money in the store’s safe into the bag, then fled the area.

“It appears the suspect depicted in the surveillance video has a tattoo under their right eye,” the release said.

Anyone who can identify the robber or knows of his whereabouts is urged to call Maj. Cody Bishop at 864-942-8701 or investigator Jonathon Davis at 864-943-8039.

The robbery happened at about 9:45 p.m. on Sept. 27, when a man wearing a hoodie with red sleeves and sweat pants went in through the side door of Subway and pointed a handgun at an employee, demanding money from the safe. He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash, ran toward the Bi-Lo nearby and left in a white vehicle that had been parked there.
