Police Searching for Suspect After Attempted Armed Robbery

Posted: Updated:

Police are searching for the man a worker at the Bjornson Oil convenience store says held up the gas station at gunpoint.

It happened around 8:30 Sunday night at 734 North University Drive at Bjornson Oil Company.

Police were speaking with the owner of the company and the woman who faced the gunman this evening as she was working in the convenience store.

She told police the man came in, pointed a small, black handgun at her and demanded money.

But the suspect ran off empty-handed when she wasn't able to open the register.

Police set up a perimeter and used a tracking dog to try and find the man, but so far they have been unsuccessful.

The dog was able to find a jacket they believe could be the robber's, but police have not yet confirmed it was.

"All I can really give out at this point is we're looking for a male that was wearing a ski mask, about six foot in height, thin build and had a heavy accent," Sergeant Chris Helmick, of the Fargo Police Department, said.

Police say there may have been other customers in the store at the time, but information is still limited.

If you know anything about the armed man or the attempted robbery, call Fargo Police at (701) 241-5777 to leave an anonymous tip.
