GHENT, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky State Police released surveillance footage of two men they say robbed a Subway in Carroll County, Dec. 17.
Officials say two white men walked in the Subway around 8 p.m. Tuesday evening when only one employee was in the store. The Subway is in the community of Ghent and located on Main Street.
According to investigators, the female employee told them one of the suspects pointed a handgun at her and demanded money.
The employee told WDRB News that she is two and a half months pregnant, and was worried about the safety of her baby.
Police say when the employee handed the money to the suspect, both men fled from the store.
The suspect who pointed the gun at the employee is described as a white male in his early twenties, between 5'9" and 6'0" and wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.
The other suspect is described as the same height, but was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black jacket and black jeans.
"The pictures really don't show a face of these people, but you can see what they were wearing; their build," says Trooper Brad Arterburn with Kentucky State Police.
Trooper Brad Arterburn, with KSP Post 5 in Campbellsburg, says the two men probably knew the employee was alone when they went inside the business.
"They don't want to have to deal with all sorts of people who could also have guns and try to stop them, or call the police or whatever, so it's definitely easy for them to target them late at night when they know it's just going to be one person in there," says Trooper Arterburn.
Authorities say they are now going door-to-door in Ghent, asking people in the small town if they recognize the two men, who got away with hundreds of dollars.
They're hoping someone has information that will help, and say this is the time of year when more and more crimes like these tend to happen.
"In the holidays, people need more money for whatever they've got going on so they get desperate when they're trying to buy presents or whatever, and desperate people do desperate things like this," says Trooper Arterburn.
Anyone with information is asked to call KSP Post 5 at 502-532-6363.
