Police: Man tried to rob Blackstone Subway
BLACKSTONE – Police are asking the public for help in identifying a man who attempted to rob a clerk at the Subway in the Park ‘n’ Shop plaza Wednesday.
At about 5:30 p.m., a white male wearing a dark sweatshirt, a dust mask and safety goggles walked into the sandwich shop and passed a note to the clerk demanding money.
Police described the device covering the suspect’s face as a “dual filter dust/ respirator mask.” The safety goggles were “Oakley style” clear plastic safety goggles, the Blackstone Police Department said in a statement. The suspect was also wearing a dark blue jacket with the Carhartt logo.
