1. Police believe a man who has robbed several businesses in the greater Portland area robbed a Subway restaurant in Westbrook on Monday night. The suspect entered the Subway at Prides Corner just after 8:30 p.m., showed a handgun and demanded cash, according to police. The suspect’s description matches the suspect that is believed to have robbed six other businesses over the last week. Police across Cumberland County have said the robber is about 5 feet 5 inches tall. He has worn an oversized hooded sweatshirt with a dark green and light green camouflage pattern with the hood pulled over his head. (WMTW)
2. One day after her widely watched interview on 60 Minutes, Stormy Daniels filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen for defamation. Daniels claims that Cohen tried to portray her in the public eye as “a liar, someone who should not be trusted.” She also accused Cohen of threatening her to stay quiet about her affair. Regardless of whether or not Daniels is telling the truth, her appearance on 60 Minutes drew 21.3 million viewers. That’s the CBS program’s largest audience since 2008 when 24.5 million people watched Barack and Michelle Obama give their first post-election interview. (WP)

Last year Tebow helped set attendance records at minor league parks, drawing an average of an extra 2,500 fans per game on the road. (PH)
4. The breakout star of this year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament has undeniably been Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, the 98-year-old team chaplain for the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers. Sensing an opportunity to turn Jean-mania into money, Loyola officials approached the ever-quotable nun about licensing merchandise with her name on it, and she granted them permission. So far, Loyola has approved more than 25 Sister Jean t-shirts, with Fanatics creating a Final Four shirt with her now-famous quote, “Worship, Work, and Win!” (ESPN)
