DOVER, Del. - Dover police say just after 10 p.m. Friday, a Subway restaurant on Forrest Avenue was robbed.

Police say two men walked in, one showing a gun and the other revealing a knife, and demanded cash from an employee.

Once they got their hands on the cash they ran away.

"It's kind of scary because you hear about that in big cities. It's coming to smaller towns now and it just shows that crime is getting more popular," said Sarah Hayes of Dover.

Business owners like Sean Riley, of Expresso-N-Ice in Dover say he's always concerned about his employees.

"Being a guy, I guess we always feel we can take care of ourselves, but my wife works here. I have young ladies that work here, so it is a big concern. We've tried to put things in place to protect us but everyone's vulnerable," said Riley.

Police are releasing very little information about the two robbers.

One is said to be in his early 20's, standing about 5-feet-8 inches tall and weighing about 190 pounds.

The other is described as about 5-feet-6 inches tall with a thin build.

"It makes me worry about going out or letting my children go out to do things when you could be standing in a store and be in the middle of a crime," said Deborah O'Brien of Dover.

O'Brien says crime may be reduced if police stepped up their presence.

Riley says it will take a community to come together for change.

"No one individual can make that change. They can be part of the change but no one person is going to change the way things are, unfortunately," said Riley.

Riley and others say they hope someone comes forward with information that will lead to an arrest.

Anyone with information can make an anonymous call to the Dover Police Department at (302) 736-7111.
