SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A knife-wielding man was taken into custody shortly after he attempted to rob a sandwich shop in downtown San Diego early Thursday morning, police said.

The man tried to rob the Subway sandwich shop at 1111 Sixth Ave. around 1:40 a.m., according to San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros.

He threatened an employee with a knife while demanding cash but the employee refused and the suspect fled empty-handed, Delimitros said in a statement.

A witness saw the man leave and pointed him out to officers, who arrested him without further incident, Delimitros said.
