April 05, 1994

A man armed with a double-barreled sawed-off shotgun attempted to rob an Ellicott City fast-food shop late Saturday night, but fled when a frightened employee ran to the back of the restaurant, Howard County police said.

The man entered the Subway shop in the 9200 block of Route 40 about 11:50 p.m. Saturday and ordered the clerk to give him money from the cash register, police said.

When the employee ran to the rear of the store, the would-be robber ran from the restaurant.
