Latrobe police are trying to identify a man who robbed the BP gas station-convenience store early Friday.

Police said the store at 204 Lloyd Ave. was robbed about 12:30 a.m.

The suspect wore a gray, hooded sweatshirt, gray gloves, black pants and white shoes, said police Chief John Sleasman. Police reported the man, who had his face covered with a black bandanna, threatened the clerk with pepper spray before fleeing with an unspecified amount of cash.

“He fled west out of the store toward the Jioio’s Restaurant along Route 981,” Sleasman said.

Sleasman said police would also like residents along Lloyd Avenue who may have outdoor surveillance video recorders to contact investigators.

The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 6 feet tall and 200 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 724-537-5526.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

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.
