An off-duty police officer stumbled upon an armed holdup at a Subway restaurant in Little Rock and arrested the teenager in the case a short time later, authorities said.
Cameron Bryant Kingsby, 17, of Little Rock was arrested on charges of aggravated robbery and fleeing, according to the Little Rock Police Department.
The robbery happened around 7:40 p.m. Monday at the sandwich chain’s location at 4012 Plateau St., which is near UAMS Medical Center, according to a police report.
The officer emerged from the restaurant’s restroom to find a hooded robber brandishing a handgun at customers, the report said.

Police said Kingsby was arrested after a short foot chase as a second officer arrived at the scene.
