A man robbed the 76 gas station at Magnesium Road and Nevada Street early Saturday morning.
The clerk told police that a man walked in about 1:45 a.m. armed with a handgun. He demanded cash and fled in an unknown direction, Spokane police said in a news release.
The clerk told police the man was about 6 feet tall, of medium build and “possibly Middle Eastern.” He was wearing a blue or black hoodie, dark jeans or sweat pants, and a scarf or mask hiding his face.
Spokane police used a K-9 team and the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office helicopter to try to track the robber, but could not find him.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Crime Check, (509) 456-2233.
