New Kensington police are searching for a man who robbed the Valero gas station, at Seventh Street and Constitution Boulevard, just after 10 a.m. Friday.

The man, described as white, 5 feet-11 inches tall, was wearing a blue jacket. Police believe he may have said he had a handgun but didn't show it to a clerk.

The man got an unknown amount of money and fled in an unknown direction, police said.

Valley High School in New Kensington was locked down briefly as a precaution because of its proximity to the robbery site.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 724-339-7533.
