Armed Robbery at Subway
Submitted By Sgt. David Ostrander, Milpitas PD
On November 26 at 7:24 p.m., employees at Subway Restaurant reported an armed robbery had just occurred. A male subject, later identified as San Jose resident Danjael Banks, entered the store wearing a disguise, armed with a large kitchen knife. The disguise consisted of a wig, hat, gloves, and neoprene type ski mask. The suspect jumped the service counter and demanded money from the cash register. He took the money, jumped back over the counter, and fled on foot. Within two minutes, the first officer arrived on-scene.
Witnesses in the area saw Banks run behind a business across the street from Subway. They saw Banks run towards S. Main Street and notified officers. Responding officers located Banks on S. Main Street near Corning Ave. and detained him. The victim clerks and witnesses identified Banks as the suspect and he was taken into custody within four minutes of the call being dispatched.
Banks was booked at the Santa Clara County Main Jail for Armed Robbery.
It is with the assistance from the witnesses and the quick response of the responding officers that this suspect was arrested within minutes of committing an armed robbery. The Milpitas Police Department encourages all citizens to immediately call the Police to report suspicious activity.
