Detectives are seeking the public’s assistance in locating a suspect who attempted to rob the Exxon Gas Station located at 3403 Holly Road on Sunday, November 22 shortly after 5 p.m.
An employee of the gas station reported that he was standing outside the business. When he re-entered the business, a man followed behind him. Once inside, the man produced a handgun, threatened the victim and demanded money.

There were no injuries.

- 28-37 years old
- He was between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall and weighed about 200 pounds
- He was wearing a dark jacket, a dark hat and lighter colored pants.
