STONY POINT, N.Y. -- Stony Point police are on the hunt for a man who robbed a Mobil Gas Station early Tuesday by threatening a cashier with a hammer and forcing him into a bathroom, police said.
The robbery took place around 12:37 a.m. at 163 S. Liberty Drive, when a stocky man walked into the store, jumped the counter and threatened the cashier with the hammer, said Lt. Keith Williams.
According to Williams, the suspect, wearing gray sweatpants, a maroon sweatshirt, a wool cap, gloves and a white towel covering his face, forced the cashier to open the register and take the cash draw out of the machine.
He then forced the employee into a bathroom and left the store with an undetermined amount of cash, fleeing northbound toward Major Andre Drive, he added.
A search of the area was unsuccessful, Williams said.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Stony Point Police Detective Bureau at 845-786-2744.
The Stony Point Police was assisted by the Rockland County Sheriff’s Patrol, B.C.I., K9, and the Haverstraw Town Police.
