Authorities told News 2 the suspect entered the gas station with what might have been a gun and demanded money.

The gas station clerk went to the back of the building and locked himself inside a back room.

At that point, the suspect grabbed the cash register drawer and took off in a dark sedan, which police believe could be a 2012 Nissan Altima.

The suspect is described as a 28 to 32-year-old man, 5 foot 10 inches tall, 180 pounds. He was wearing a black jacket with white logos, blue jeans and a black knit cap.

No additional information is available at this time.
