Hamburg gas station robbed Wednesday night

A man with a semi-automatic handgun robbed a Hamburg gas station Wednesday night.

The suspect, who police said should be considered armed and dangerous, fled the store in a 2010 maroon or dark red Ford Edge with North Dakota license plates JYW439. The plates were from a vehicle reported stolen from Mandan, N.D.

The suspect is described as a white male who was wearing a navy blue New England Patriots hooded sweatshirt and a leather jacket.

At least one other person was in the vehicle, police said, possibly a female in her 20s.
