January 30, 2008|By HEATHER KEELS

Within four minutes of an armed robbery Tuesday night at Freddie's Sub Shop, Hagerstown Police arrested a man seen running from the scene, Sgt. Johnny L. Murray said.

Michael Charles Harbaugh, 40, of Lynnehaven Drive in Hagerstown, was charged with armed robbery, theft and two counts of second-degree assault, Murray said.

No one was injured in the 5:37 p.m. robbery at the restaurant at 520 Park Lane, Murray said. There were two employees, but no customers, in the shop when a man entered, showed a gun and demanded cash, Murray said.

Witnesses described a man they saw running in the area, and police quickly found someone matching the description. Harbaugh was arrested without incident on Park Lane near the shop, Murray said. He was identified based on the description and other evidence recovered from him and the crime scene, Murray said.
