A 21-year-old Benton Harbor man is in jail, accused of an armed robbery at the Subway restaurant on Main Street across from Whirlpool’s Riverview Campus. Public safety officers were nearby when the robbery happened just before 9 p.m. Tuesday and caught the suspect quickly. A pistol was also found during the arrest along with the money taken from the register. No one was hurt in the robbery, and the Subway opened at its normal time today. The suspect’s name is being withheld until he’s arraigned.
