Boulder police are interviewing a suspect who investigators say may have robbed a Subway store near Baseline Road and Mohawk Drive on Thursday night and may have been involved in other such crimes, officials say.
Police were alerted to a possible armed robbery at the Subway, 4760 Baseline Road, just before 8 p.m. Thursday, according to police radio traffic.
The suspect was described as a white man, about 6 feet tall, with blond hair, blue eyes and a thin build, according to radio traffic. He wore a mask over his face and white gloves.
It was unclear if the suspect displayed a gun or other weapon during the robbery.
Shortly after interviewing witnesses at the Subway, police located a man matching the suspect's description in a nearby parking lot, according to Boulder police spokeswoman Kim Kobel.
The man had an outstanding warrant on suspicion of violating state pawnbroking law, Kobel said.
He was taken into custody and taken to Boulder police headquarters where investigators were interviewing him as of 10:45 p.m., Kobel said.
"We're talking to him and attempting to connect him to other robberies," Kobel said. "Depending on what he says, there could be other charges."
There has been a recent string of sandwich shop robberies in Boulder, including at the Quiznos at 1606 Conestoga St. on Dec. 18 and the Subway at 2539 Arapahoe Ave. on Dec. 20. In both those cases, a masked assailant entered the store and demanded money before fleeing on foot.
Authorities have also arrested Alishan Yapoujian, a man investigators say may have been involved in a dozen recent armed robberies in the Boulder area.
Yapoujian was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of robbing a Boulder Conoco station Sunday.
