A customer at a Subway in Lincoln Park alleges an employee pointed a gun and assaulted him. He's suing the chain and the restaurant's owners for more than $50,000, according to the Cook County Record, claiming the parties failed to protect him from the ensuing emotional distress and injuries.

Travis Allison filed the lawsuit on March 17 at Cook County court. He claimed employee Hernan Saucedo threatened him, assaulted him and brandished a gun on March 17, 2014 at the Subway at 2008 N. Halsted St.

Allison's attorney, Michael T. Friedman, said they attempted to settle the matter but talks broke down before an agreement could be reached. The statute of limitations to file charges is two years.

The next court date is May 11, according to court records.
