New Kensington police have released a photo of a man they allege took money from the BP gas station along Tarentum Bridge Road at Freeport Road this week.

Police hope a member of the public will recognize the man and help to identify him.

The man walked into the BP store at about 11 p.m. Tuesday and tried to use an ATM machine to withdraw cash. When that didn't work, he approached the counter, holding three $1 bills to pay for a purchase.

But when the clerk opened the cash register, the man reached over and grabbed an unknown amount of cash, police said.

The man left the store, and no injuries were reported.

The surveillance photo shows a black man, well over 6 feet tall, who wore a brown zippered sweatshirt and blue jeans. He had facial hair.

Police said he was seen leaving in a maroon-colored SUV driven by a woman.
