The Subway restaurant on West Sacramento Avenue was robbed by a man at gunpoint.

The subject has been identified as Christian Short, a Chico State student, and has since been arrested and transported to Butte County Jail.

According to a press release, the Chico Police Department received a notification of a Hold Up Alarm early Thursday morning and contacted the store clerk who reported that a male subject with a handgun had demanded cash from the clerk.

After the man had been handed the cash he fled the restaurant on foot.

“We’re just glad that all of our employees are safe and are very grateful to the Chico Police Department for responding and apprehending the suspect so quickly,” Rich Farrienger, owner of the branch, said.

Chico Police Department Officer Sophia Maggiora saw a man who matched the description of the suspect running near West Sacramento Avenue and Esplanade Avenue and detained him at gunpoint.

The suspect threw some items into nearby bushes before being apprehended at gunpoint by Maggiora. These items were later identified as a handgun and a large sum of cash.

Further investigation revealed that the handgun is registered to a Jeremy Williams. Wiliams was then later arrested.
