Police cordoned off an area outside the Four Winds Esso gas station in West Bay Thursday night after a robber apparently held up one of the store workers.
According to investigating officers, about 8.50pm Thursday, a male attendant was working in the forecourt of the Esso gas station at the four-way-stop in West Bay.
Police said the attendant was confronted by a male brandishing what appeared to be a firearm. Officers said the male forced the attendant inside the convenience store on the property before making off with a sum of cash.
No shots were fired and no one was injured.
The male suspect is described as being about 5’10”, with a clear complexion. He was wearing a grey-coloured long sleeved t-shirt, short blue jean pants, tennis shoes, a bandana and a black baseball cap.
Residents in the area initially stated that two men were involved in the heist, but there was no indication of a second man in the police report.
The RCIPS has asked that anyone who has any information about this crime, or who was in the area of the four-way-stop last night at the relevant time, to call West Bay police station on 949-3999 or the confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477(TIPS).
