WESTBURY - The serial robber who has been holding up Long Island eateries at knifepoint has apparently struck again.

Nassau police say the suspect robbed a Subway sandwich shop on Old Country Road in Westbury around 8:20 p.m. Saturday.

The robber held a knife to an employee, demanded money and then fled on foot. No one was injured.

The store manager says he got away with about $800.
