COLUMBIA — Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches at 212 Corporate Lake Drive in south Columbia was robbed early Wednesday morning.
Two males entered the restaurant around 12:40 a.m. wearing masks and gloves and carrying at least one gun, according to a news release from the Columbia Police Department.
The two demanded money from employees and then left the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, according to the release. No one was injured during the incident, according to the release.
Police have not yet identified the men, according to the release. Surveillance footage of the robbery exists, but no information on the incident has been released, said police spokeswoman Latisha Stroer.
This is the second armed robbery to occur at a Jimmy John's in Columbia this month, with the previous incident taking place on July 15 at the chain's 4008 W. Broadway location. Stroer said there were significant differences between the two robberies.
Stroer said the men fit the same description as those involved in a recent attempted robbery at Taco Bell on July 25 and at the Break Time on North Stadium Boulevard on July 22, but she said no definite connection among the crimes exists at this time.
Police are asking anyone with information about the robbery to call CrimeStoppers at 875-TIPS.
