For the third time in seven days, someone was robbed at the Citgo gas station at 700 Main St. in Niagara Falls, according to a city police report.
An employee told police he was robbed in the parking lot at about 12:50 a.m. Tuesday as he was closing up for the night.
The victim told police he was walking outside to dispose of garbage when a vehicle approached him. The driver wanted him to open the store. When the victim refused, the driver demanded whatever he had on him and made a gesture like he was pulling out a weapon, according to the report.
The robber took cash and drove away, heading east on Pine Avenue. The vehicle was described as a copper-colored, four-door Ford.
Two masked men robbed the store Sunday night, while a woman pumping gas was attacked and robbed on Nov. 7, according to police reports.
