NASHVILLE, Tenn. - An armed robbery at a fast food restaurant was caught on tape.

Metro police said a robber seen in surveillance video is extremely dangerous because of the way he uses his gun.

Police said he may be responsible for other robberies in the Midstate.

The robbery happened at a new Subway at 857 Briley Parkway in Hermitage.

At 9 p.m. on Sept. 6, a man walked into the restaurant and pulled a long barrel handgun out of his waistband. He demanded money.

"The clerks immediately complied, did everything the suspect told them to do in fear for their life," said Jason Rosalia, a Metro detective. "The suspect even reached over the counter to make sure they were doing as instructed."

The robbery was caught on tape. Police said the man appears to be in his 20's about 6 feet tall and 180 pounds.

Detectives said he is extremely dangerous.

They don't like the way he points the weapon.

"You can see clearly that the hammer was back on the revolver, which makes this much more of a dangerous situation for the clerk," Rosalia said.

The suspect got the money and ran out the door.

No one saw a vehicle.

If anyone can identify the suspect, they should call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.

"We're hopeful that there's going to be a member of the community that's going to recognize him, be able to give us his name, so we can link him to this case and possibly additional cases in other precincts that we'll share with those detectives," the detective said.

Callers to Crime Stoppers may remain anonymous and could qualify for a cash reward.
