BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A trial date has been set for the man accused of robbing a fast-food restaurant for a sandwich at gunpoint last year.

Court officials reported the armed robbery trial for Daniel Hobdy, 29, of Baton Rouge, will start on March 30, 2015.

The Baton Rouge Police Department said Hobdy walked into the Subway on Burbank Drive near the LSU campus with a handgun on Oct. 2, 2013 and demanded a sandwich. According to investigators, the workers prepared the sandwich and the suspect ran out of the store. Hobdy was arrested a short time later.

According to court records, Hobdy is a veteran of the Iraq War and was diagnosed with PTSD and depression after leaving the military in 2008. Reports indicate Hobdy has no prior felony arrests or convictions nor any arrests for violent crimes.

The court documents also stated his family has located inpatient facilities specializing in PTSD and/or depression and secured outpatient psychiatric treatment through the VA once he has successfully completed an inpatient program.
