A 22-year-old woman was jailed Saturday morning on suspicion of robbing a Subway sandwich shop in the Core Columbia neighborhood near downtown, according to authorities.

Talia Young entered the restaurant at 1111 6th Ave. at about 8:30 a.m. Saturday, ordered several sandwiches and helped herself to a soda without paying, according to Sgt. Ray Battick.

Young reportedly got angry and threatened the employee when she was asked about paying for the food and drink, Battick said. She allegedly then broke a change machine on the counter, sending coins spilling on the floor.

Young, who also took some of the coins and left the store without the food, was arrested by police nearby, Battick said.

According to the San Diego County Sheriff's jail web site, Young was booked into the Las Colinas Women's Detention Facility in Santee at 11:15 a.m. Saturday on suspicion of second-degree robbery and was scheduled to be arraigned in Superior Court on Wednesday.
