Sherman gas station robbed at gunpoint for second time in months

By  | 

SHERMAN, TEXAS -- Police are searching for the man who robbed this Sherman gas station at gunpoint just before one o'clock this afternoon.

"He walked in and display a firearm or pistol, and demanded the money," Sgt. D.M. Hampton with Sherman Police Department said.

Sherman police say a white man about 5 foot 10 of average build walked up to the Valero convenience store counter, wearing a backwards hoodie, with slits cut for his eyes.

Ironically, the last suspect to rob this store -- seen here back in November -- also wore a hoodie in a similar manner.

"After getting the money, an undetermined amount of cash, he ended up leaving the store on foot," Hampton said.

He then took off west, in the direction of a nearby bowling alley.

Employees there say officers warned them that the suspect is still on the loose.

"They asked, 'Has anybody been in here in the last couple minutes?' bowling alley employee Chuck Schuler said.

Meantime, other law enforcement officers were making a perimeter around the gas station, hoping someone would spot the suspect so they could apprehend him.

"Obviously he's armed and dangerous, but if they do see anybody matching that description, they need to call us. Or if they did see anybody around that time or several minutes after," Hampton said.
