Statesboro police are searching for a young man who robbed the Subway shop on Lanier Drive overnight Sunday.

In security video, the young man walks from the restroom, fumbles through his pants pockets, pulls a gun and forces the clerk to open the register. He also robs the clerk of his cell phone and car keys.

The clerk's car, a 2012 Silver Honda Accent, was recovered later Monday morning.

Police describe the robber as a African-American male, 5 foot 6 inches tall, facial hair, an earring in the left ear, wearing a gray t-shirt with a white undershirt and black shorts. He was also wearing a New York Yankees cap and carrying a black backpack with "DJK" on it.
