The Tyler Police department is asking the public for help finding a man who robbed a South Tyler gas station at gunpoint Saturday night.
Officers were called to the Food Fast gas station at 6424 South Broadway close to 9:40 p.m., according to a news release from the Tyler Police Department.
The store employee said a black man, between 5-feet-8-inches and 5-feet-10-inches tall weighing about 150 pounds, came into the store. The man was wearing a dark brown sweater, dark pants and had a goatee.
The man grabbed one of the store employees with his hand and a gun-like object was covered by a rag or shirt, the release states. The man demanded money from the cashier, which was placed in a bag.
The man then ran from the back of the store, headed east.
Just before the robbery, one of the employees saw an older-model white, four-door sedan parked behind the building. The man’s face was concealed with a light-colored stocking cap, according to police.
No employees were injured in the robbery, and the incident remains under investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Tyler Police Department, at 903-531-1000, or Crimestoppers at 903-597-CUFF (903-597-2833).
Crimestoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest and charges filed against the suspects in this case or any felony case.
