(Updated at 10:50 a.m.) A man sought in a robbery with a knife in a NoMa sandwich shop last week has appeared in surveillance footage, police said.

The armed robbery happened at the Subway near H and North Capitol streets NW about 8 a.m. June 26. During the robbery, the suspect lifted up his shirt to reveal a knife he hid in his clothes.

Video authorities distributed late last week in connection with the crime shows a man talking to a cashier at the restaurant. The Subway worker then opened the cash register, and the man grabbed fistfuls of cash, which he put in his pocket before leaving.

Police also nabbed a man wanted in a NoMa bank robbery over the weekend.

The robbery, which involved a note to a teller, occurred in the TD Bank at 1275 1st St. NE about 12:15 p.m. Saturday.

Joshua Parker, a 30-year-old man who has no fixed address, was arrested yesterday in connection with the crime. Information on his lawyer wasn’t immediately available.
