Police search for gas station crook
NORTH MIAMI, Fla. (WSVN) -- Police are searching for the man who robbed a South Florida gas station.
According to police, an armed man entered the Chevron gas station on Biscayne Boulevard and 130th Street, Monday night, at around 10:30 p.m., and immediately demanded cash.
The clerk was seen on surveillance bending under the counter. The subject then grabbed the clerk, which prompted the clerk to fight back with a chain. "He's hitting him with what appears to be a chain, maybe with some keys on it," said North Miami Police detective Felix Guadarrama. "Then the struggle goes on for a while, and the end result was he snatches the register off, disconnects everything and runs out the door."
Police said the man had a gun but never fired it. "He had a gun the whole time. Was it loaded? We don't know. The reason may be he just didn't want to shoot anyone. We tell everyone to give up the money don't fight because we don't want anyone to get hurt," said Guadarrama.
The crook is described to be in his early 20s, wearing a hooded sweater at the time of the robbery. "You'll see he got his hooded sweater on, real thick Army type," said Guadarrama.
The clerk has not returned to work.
No one was injured.
