Clarksville police are continuing to search for a man who committed a strong arm robbery at a gas station on Saturday morning.

The incident occurred around 5:30 a.m. at a gas station located at 2350 Madison Street.

The man, who is described as a black male around five feet, 11 inches tall, fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.

He was last seen wearing white clothing, a dark jacket and orange hat.
