St. Petersburg Police are searching for an armed man who attempted to rob a Subway restaurant last night at around 10 p.m.

A female clerk who was working at the time of the incident says a man entered the store and pointed a handgun at her while demanding money. She ran to the back of the store, taking another male employee with her and hid in a cooler. She then called her boyfriend who immediately called police.

When police arrived, the gunman was no where to be found. He left without taking any money, police say.
