COLUMBIA – A Sub Shop employee was robbed early Saturday morning while delivering food in the area of the 1400 block of Bodie Drive, according to a news release from the Columbia Police Deparment.
While in route to the delivery the employee was notified that the original address was changed to another address within the same block.
The victim arrived at the location at 12:30 a.m., making contact with four female suspects in front of the address. A fifth subject, identified as the primary suspect, approached and demanded money. When the victim refused, she was struck in the face by the primary suspect.
