Employees of Subway restaurant, 830 East Midlothian Blvd., reported that a black male with shoulder-length dreadlocks took about $2.50 from the tip jar at 3:04 p.m. Friday while disputing the amount of change he and a black female received from the clerk.
The man also tried reaching into the cash register, but the clerk closed the drawer and kept him from getting his hand inside. The pair fled in an unknown type of car, the employees said.
Both suspects were in their early 20s, and both were about 5 feet, eight inches and 180 pounds, the employees said. The woman had her hair in a ponytail and wore pink shorts and white graphic T-shirt.
