DULUTH - A Chevron gas station was robbed Tuesday night by a man demanding money from the safe, police said.
Duluth Police Department spokesman Maj. Don Woodruff said the gas station at 2700 Buford Highway in Duluth was robbed about 10:15 p.m.
According to a police report, a black man wearing a baggy jogging suit with a scarf covering his face entered the station armed with a "cheap" gun, demanding the store clerk open the safe.
The thief was persistent about opening the safe after noticing a pair of keys hanging under the counter, but the clerk told him the keys opened gas pumps, the report said. The clerk was able to open the register and gave the man all the money, according to the report.
The clerk told police the man demanded he give him his wallet then fled from the store with more than $1,000 from the register and $300 from the clerk.
A clerk working at the gas station Wednesday was unable to answer questions about the robbery and said a manager was not available. She said she was unaware of the incident and said the clerk working at the time of the robbery no longer worked at the station.
