Man sought in hold up try of Kenmore gas station

Kenmore police are searching for the man with a gun who tried to hold up a Military Road gas station Sunday night.

The man entered the Gulf Mart at 877 Military Road and took two cans of Mountain Dew to the register, police said. As the cashier rang up the items, the man pulled out a black handgun and told the cashier to hand over money “nice and easy,” police said.

When the cashier reached under the counter, the suspect fled the store south on Military behind Our Bar and Mike’s Restaurant. Officers were able to track the suspect’s prints in the snow to West Hazeltine Avenue where they believe he was walking eastbound in the street.

The suspect was described as a white male, five foot six inches tall, wearing all black.
