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.
