"He walked into the store, so I walked to the end of the counter and asked him, 'how can I help you?'" May said.
May thought he was taking a routine order at the Subway restaurant on South 14th Street. But the man put a handgun in Jeremy's face, and demanded all the money in the register.
"'Open the door and set it on top of the counter.' Then I pulled all the bills out of the drawer and he said to put it in his hand, so I put them in his hand," May said.
After that, the robber told Jeremy to go to the back room. The robber then ran out the front door. Jeremy says the robber was dressed in heavy clothing. He had a hoodie and sunglasses on, making it hard to see his face.
"I thought it was weird that he was dressed in such heavy clothing for this time of year," May said.
The suspect is described as a black or hispanic man, about 5'5", slim build, with acne scares on his face. The robbery happened around 2 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. Officials with the Abilene Police Department a robbery like this, in the middle of the day, is unusual.
"Most robberies are in the evening, after dark. Especially your convenience stores. It's going to be the late night hours, we don't have much during the day," said Officer Lance Vines, with the Abilene Police Department.
Jeremy says he's not shocked that something like this happened to him, because it could happened to anyone who has a job like his.
"I wouldn't say I never thought it would happen, because it's a possibility for anyone that works," May said.
