    Police are looking for the robbers who struck at a Citgo in Berlin.

    Police are investigating the robbery of a limousine driver at the Citgo Station on the Berlin Turnpike in Berlin around 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

    The victim was pumping gasoline when a man approached him, said he needed money and implied that he had a gun, Berlin Police Deputy Chief John Klett said.

    The driver told police he initially gave the robber $2, but the man asked if he had more cash, so he handed over another $5. 

    Police are looking for the man, as well as the four other men who were in the car with him. On Thursday, they released surveillance photos.

    The suspected robber is between 25 and 35 years old, police said. He is 5-feet-10 to 6-feet-1 and weighs between 200 and 230 pounds.

    He is bald and was unshaven, wearing a white-colored V-neck shirt  under a black zippered hooded jacket and dark-colored footwear at the time of the robbery.

    Police said the driver is a person of interest. He is also 25 to 35 years old and 5-feet-10 to 6-feet-1.

    He weighs between 195 and 215 pounds and has a muscular build and faint goatee. He was  wearing a fitted red long-sleeved crewneck shirt, faded designer blue jeans and red, black and white colored athletic footwear with red-colored laces. 

    He was wearing a gold chain around his neck and around his right wrist.  He was also wearing what appeared to be a NBA Chicago Bulls red-colored baseball cap with a black-colored brim.

    The passenger in the right front seat is also a person of interest, police said.

    He was described as 25 to 35 years old and 6-feet-3 to 6-feet-5. He weighs 300 pounds. He is clean shaven and was wearing an oversized white crewneck T-shirt, faded blue jeans, white-colored athletic footwear and a MLB New York Yankees baseball cap worn backward.

    Police said he has a small tattoo on his right inner elbow and a large tattoo on his left arm that was visible on his inner elbow, forearm and partial bicep area.

    The third person of interest is the passenger who was sitting in the back seat on the left, 

    He too is between 25 and 35 years old and 5-feet-10 to 6-feet-1. He is between 195 and 210 pounds and has a goatee. He was wearing a fitted black skull cap, a black long-sleeve shirt under a black short-sleeve crewneck T-shirt, light blue jeans and black and white athletic footwear.

    The car is a new model black sedan with polished rims, according to police. It might be a Chrysler 300.
