Police: Armed Robber Strikes Greenwich Gas Station On Route 1

GREENWICH, Conn. -- The attendant at the Sheep Hill Mobil Gas Station on Route 1 in Greenwich was robbed at gunpoint by a lone male suspect wearing a mask early Saturday, police said. 

At 1:30 a.m., the suspect entered the gas station at 1129 E. Putnam Ave., brandishing a handgun and demanding cash, said Lt. Kraig Gray, public information officer. 

The attendant, who was not injured, immediately complied with the demands, Gray said, and the suspect fled the store with a small amount of cash.  

The suspect got into a waiting vehicle, described as possibly an older model gold-colored SUV, and fled the area, he said.

The suspect was described as a male with a light complexion, unknown age, and of average height with average build, Gray said.  

The suspect was also wearing  a plastic semi-opaque Halloween mask and sunglasses, a dark hoodie sweatshirt, brown jacket, dark colored pants and white sneakers, he said.
