OLD SAYBROOK, CT (WFSB) -

An Old Saybrook man is facing charges after police said he tried to rob a Subway restaurant on Thursday. 

Police responded to the Subway on Boston Post Road and quickly surrounded the area.

The suspect, identified as 25-year-old Thomas Einsmann, was located near the Amtrak train station.

Police said Einsmann tried to rob the Subway but when an employee didn't immediately cooperate, he fled.

A second employee attempted to follow the suspect, but couldn't catch up so the employee alerted an Old Saybrook police officer.

Einsmann was arrested and charged with first-degree criminal attempted robbery, fifth-degree criminal attempted larceny, second-degree breach of peace, carrying a dangerous weapon, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was held on a $100,000 bond and is expected to appear in court on Friday.

No injuries were reported in the incident.
