BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) - The Battle Creek Police Department needs your help in finding a man accused of robbing a gas station early Monday morning.
Officers responded at 3:31 a.m. Monday to a hold-up alarm at the Speedway gas station, 566 W. Columbia Ave.
Two employees were inside and reported a man walked in, pointed a handgun at them and demanded money. The workers gave him an undisclosed amount of cash and he ran from the scene, according to a news release.
A police K-9 unit tracked the suspect but lost a scent behind Lassen Automotive located nearby.
The suspect was seen on the business' surveillance camera.
He is described as a light-skinned, black male in his late teens or early 20s; about 5 feet 6 inches tall; weighing about 140 pounds; having a thin build; and wearing a red, hooded sweatshirt with black print, a black and gold do-rag, black shorts with white stripes around the bottom of the legs; and gray and white, striped tennis shoes.
The crook put the stolen money in his black and yellow, single-strapped satchel described as a lunch bag, police said.
He had a black- and silver-colored, semi-automatic-style handgun.
