Footage released of armed robbery at Winterville Subway

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Winterville Police are investigating an armed robbery at a Subway Thursday night.

Police say it happened around 7:00 p.m. Thursday night at the Subway on Old Tar Rd.

Employees were inside during the incident, but no one was hurt.

It’s the fourth armed robbery of a Pitt County business this week.

Sam Hazboun owns the restaurant with his wife, and he said it is the second robbery at his store.

“He pointed a gun at them,” said Hazboun. “They’re fine, one of them was crying and shaking, which you understand that because it’s scary. But they were really brave. They did the right thing, and that is what I always tell them, give them whatever they want, doesn’t matter, money comes and goes.”


The incident is under investigation.
