MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A gas station on the Boston Post Road in Milford was robbed at gunpoint on Saturday might, police say.

Authorities say that at around 10:30 p.m., the suspect went to the counter of the Mobil on the Run near the mall and pulled a gun from his waistband. They say he then demanded money, which the clerk gave him. He then ran towards the Dunkin’ Donuts next door, where police think a getaway car was waiting.

Police describe the suspect as a thin, black male standing about 5’8″ tall. They say he wore a gray hoodie with orange graphics, black pants, and white sneakers. If you have information about the suspect or the robbery, you’re asked to call Detective Henry Chacon at (203) 783-4761.
