Suffolk County cops are on the hunt for a masked gunman they said robbed a Subway restaurant in Nesconset on Friday night, according to police and a Jan. 4 report.

Investigators said the gun-toting thug had a black mask over his mouth and his hood up when he entered the sandwich shop on Smithtown Boulevard shortly after 9 p.m. He pulled out “what appeared to be a firearm” and demanded cash from an employee, a police spokesperson said.

The clerk reportedly complied with the gunman’s demands and passed him an undisclosed amount of cash before the suspect took off.

The alleged brute, cops said, is described a possibly a Hispanic male between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10. He had “busy eyebrows” and was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a black scarf.

The Friday night holdup is the latest in a string of armed robberies at Subway restaurant locations in Suffolk County, including a robbery a shop on Medford Avenue in Patchogue last Friday night and another robbery at a location on Portion Road in Ronkonkoma the following day.

Police have not said whether they believe the incidents are related. Detectives are continuing to investigate.

Anyone with information is asked to call Suffolk Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will remain confidential.
