A Subway employee was attacked by a customer who refused to pay for her sandwich and it was all caught on surveillance cameras. 
Now, police say they are searching for the woman responsible. 
Employees tell News 12 the woman ordered a sandwich and that when it was time to pay, things took a turn. 
Within minutes, bottles of soda were being thrown at the employees working. Surveillance cameras captured the woman pushing the cash register and the computer--knocking it to the floor behind the counter. 
The woman is later seen walking toward the fridge and repeatedly throwing bottles over and over again with force at both employees and tries to make a run for it. 
The employee tried to defend themselves at the door as her co-worker is seen on the phone with authorities. 
News 12 spoke to the owner of the Subway location, who says one of those employees was injured in the incident. 
A cash-only sign has been posted because the cash register and computer system that accepts credit card payments was broken beyond repair. 
The owner tells News 12 he plans on closing the store at 8 p.m. , which is two hours earlier than usual until the suspect is taken off the streets.
