Police in Homestead have yet to release the name of the suspect charged in the robbery about 5 p.m. Sunday in Homestead.
Police say the man applied for a job in the sandwich shop moments before he committed an armed robbery outside the store. Police did not immediately specify who was robbed, or what the suspect allegedly stole.
Calls to the Homestead police department just east of Pittsburgh have not been returned.
Police used the application information to locate the suspect's mother who told them he was heading to Pittsburgh on a bus, where he was arrested.
