    Staff Report

    Vermont State Police are investigating a knifepoint robbery in Wallingford that took place late Monday night - the sixth knifepoint robbery in the region since the start of the year.

    Police said around 9:30 p.m. they were called to the Mobil gas station and convenience store at 172 North Main St. for a reported armed robbery.

    Police said an investigation revealed that a man went into the store, brandished a knife to the clerk and demanded money. An undisclosed amount of money was handed over to the robber who then fled the store on foot.

    The robber was described as a white male, wearing blue jeans, and a blue or black hooded sweatshirt. Anyone with information is asked to call state police at 773-9101.

    The robbery Monday night comes on the heels of another knifepoint robbery Sunday evening in Rutland. In that case, a robber went into Beer King on Crescent Street around 6:30 p.m., brandished a knife to the clerk and fled with an undisclosed amount of money. Four other knifepoint robberies have been reported in the city since Jan. 1.

    No injuiries have been reported in any of the robberies and no arrests have been made in any of the cases. It is unclear if any of the robberies are related.
