A robbery in Lincoln Monday morning gives a Subway worker the scare of her life.

Just after 9 a.m., police say a man armed with a handgun walked into the Subway north of 27th and O Street.

Police say he demanded money from the employee who was alone in the store at the time, then bound her hands with duct–tape.

"She, as I think anybody, is not in a very good emotional place and we're going to help her try to get through that," Store Owner Michael Barton said.

Barton says the man then forced the 37–year–old employee into a walk–in cooler, then took off with cash.

The worker was locked inside for nearly an hour until a customer was able to set her free.

"She heard somebody.  She started pounding on the door and luckily the customer was smart enough to realize something was going on and went into the back room and got her out."

Police continue to search for the suspect.  They say this kind of robbery is somewhat out of the ordinary for Lincoln.

"The details of this crime are not like anything we've recently seen," Officer Katie Flood said.  "We haven't seen any employees bound and not locked in a freezer so I can't link this directly to any recent robberies we have."

The employee was very shaken up by the whole incident and will have some time off work, but thankfully, was not injured.
