FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO) – Fort Wayne Police are looking for a suspect involved in a recent gas station robbery.

Police were called to the Circle K gas station, located on Sherman Blvd., on Sunday, Oct. 7, to reports of a robbery.

The cashier told police the suspect came into the store and asked for three $50 Ultimate Multiplier scratch-off lottery tickets. As the cashier rang them up, the suspect said, “And give me everything you have, and nobody will get hurt. Don’t do anything stupid.”

The cashier reported the suspect acted like he had a gun under his sweatshirt. Although she couldn’t see a gun, she said there was a bulge in the suspect’s waistband.

After taking the scratch-offs, the suspect fled southbound from the store.

Police reviewed surveillance video and describe the suspect as a white male in his 30’s, with brown hair and a beard. He appears to be between 5’10” and 6’0″ tall. He was wearing a gray Echo hoodie with a black hood, black pants and white tennis shoes.

If you recognize the suspect, call Crime Stoppers at 436-7867.
