Police Investigate Armed Robbery at Gas Station in Prospect

Two people held up a clerk and robbed the Sunoco gas station at 68 Waterbury Road in Prospect at gunpoint Wednesday night and police are looking for them. 

Police said they responded to the gas station at 8:45 p.m. to investigate and learned that there were two robbers and one pointed a handgun at the attendant and demanded money. 

After stealing more than $100 from the attendant and $800 worth of Newport cigarettes, the robbers ran toward Scott Road in Prospect, police said. 

Police continue to look for the robbers. One appeared to be thin, less than 180 pounds, in his late teens to early 20s. He is around 6-feet to 6-feet-2-inches tall and was wearing a maroon feather down jacket with the hood up, a scarf or a neck warmer around his face and gloves. 

The other was shorter and stockier, appeared to be in his late teens to early 20s and was wearing a dark jacket and a two-tone color scarf covered his face. He was also wearing gloves and displayed a black semi-automatic handgun that had numerous scratches on the slide, police said.
