Armed man robs gas station in Forsyth County

Posted:

CUMMING, Ga. — A masked man with an "automatic style firearm" went into a gas station and took the money in the cash register, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

At about 11 p.m. Dec. 10, deputies were dispatched to Texaco, 740 Atlanta Highway, because of an armed robbery.

When deputies arrived, the employee told them she was sitting behind the counter when a man, who looked about 30 years old, came in wearing a light blue ski mask, a dark hoodie and blue jeans.

He then pulled out an "automatic style firearm" and demanded money from the cash register.

The employee took out the cash and placed it into a plastic bag. She gave him the bag and he demanded she move to a storage room in the back of the building.

She said he raised his gun and directed her to stay in the storage room.

The armed robber fled the gas station on foot.

The employee said she did not know how much money the robber took.
