Gas Station Attendant Robbed at Gunpoint

Suffolk County Police Seventh Squad detectives are investigating an armed robbery that occurred at a Sound Beach gas station last night.
A man approached the attendant at CND Automotive, displayed a silver handgun, and demanded money at approximately 8:45 p.m. The attendant, a 50-year-old man, complied and gave his own wallet and cash from the register to the suspect. The suspect then fled the scene on foot southbound on Blue Point Road. The attendant sustained a minor injury and declined medical treatment at the scene.
The suspect was described as black, approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall with a medium build, wearing all black clothing, tan sneakers, black gloves and a black mask partially covering his face. He was carrying a black backpack with blue trim.
Detectives are asking anyone with information on the robbery to contact the Seventh Squad at 631-852-8752 or Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS. All calls will remain confidential.
