Mentor Police Looking For Man Who Robbed Shell Gas Station
Suspect may be same man who robbed gas station in Willoughby the same day
Mentor Police are looking for a man who robbed a Shell gas station at gunpoint Sunday morning.
At 4:07 a.m., a man came into the station at 7408 Mentor Ave. He had a black handgun and he demanded money from the clerk, Mentor Police Lt. Ken Zbiegien said.
The clerk gave him money from the register, as well as Newport cigarettes and Black & Mild cigars, and the suspect ran away on foot.
The victim described the robber as a black man, wearing a black baseball cap, a black bandanna across his face, a white T-shirt and blue jeans.
He was about five feet, 11 inches in height with a thin build.
Almost immediately after the Mentor robbery, a Shell gas station in Willoughby was robbed.
Zbiegien said the two robberies could be connected.
"There is a possibility it is the same suspect," he said.
Anyone with information regarding the Mentor robbery is encouraged to call the Mentor Detective Bureau at 440-974-5763.
