Police are looking for the man who robbed a Danville gas station early Tuesday morning.
Police say the suspect walked into the Speedway on Main Street and Fifth Street around 1:15 a.m. and asked the clerk for directions to the restroom. The man came back to the register a few minutes later with a piece of pizza. As the clerk began to ring up the purchase, the suspect demanded cash. The robber took an undisclosed amount of money and left the area in a blue Ford SUV. He was last seen traveling east on Main Street.
Police describe the robber as a black man standing about 6-feet tall, weighing 180 pounds. He was wearing a navy blue T-shirt, white khaki shorts and white Jordan shoes with black tops.
