One of two suspects in an armed robbery of a Subway sandwich shop has been arrested, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department.

The second suspect remains at large.

The robbery took place on the night of Aug 13 at the Subway on Northwest 107th Street and Seventh Avenue.

Surveillance footage captured the crime.

Two men wearing bandanas over their faces walked into the store and approached the register. One of the suspects, Stephon Patterson, 22, jumped over the counter and demanded the cashier to open the register, police said. The other man, an unidentified suspect, stood on the other side of the counter holding a gun.

As the employee opened the register they screamed, “hurry up, you got one minute.”

They emptied out the register and walked out with $500 cash.

Patterson, who was arrested Thursday, was charged with armed commercial robbery.

    Pastors in flux at St. Basil
