gas station robbery
Vermont State Police investigated a robbery early Monday morning at the Exit 4 Sunoco gas station and convenience store in Dummerston.
Police said around 1:30 a.m., a man went into the store on Route 5 and demanded money from the clerk. The clerk at first refused, but after being threatened, turned over money, police said.
The robber then fled the store with about $100 in cash, according to police.
The robber was described as a white man, between 5 feet, 5 inches and 5 feet, 8 inches tall, with an average build. He was wearing a black knitted cap pulled down over his face with eye holes cut into it. He was also wearing a blue winter jacket with a white horizontal stripe across the front and back.
Police said no weapon was displayed and no injuries were reported.
