State police at Uniontown were searching for a white male in his 40s who on Wednesday robbed at gunpoint a fuel attendant at JG Food Marts Sunoco on Route 119 South in Bullskin Township.

Police said the robber, who had a goatee and raspy voice, was wearing a nylon stocking or some type of mesh facial covering, during the 6 p.m. robbery.

The man pulled up along the full-service gas pump in a small red vehicle, possibly a two-door Pontiac Sunfire, police said. He pointed a black handgun at the fuel attendant.

“Give me the money, boy, and there will be no problem,” the robber told the attendant, according to police reports.

The worker turned over $229.

The robber left the scene southbound, headed toward Connellsville in the vehicle, which was snow-covered and dirty, according to the attendant. Police said the vehicle was possibly a 1990s model with a burnt hood and peeling paint.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the Uniontown barracks at 724-439-7111.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
