DUBLIN -- Police on Monday released a new vehicle description for the getaway car for a man who, while holding a bat and gas can, threatened to burn down a gas station last week after he demanded money from a store clerk.
Officers responded at 11:45 p.m. Wednesday to a robbery report at the Shell gas station at 5933 Dougherty Road, Lt. Herb Walters said.
By the time police got to the station, the man had fled the area.
A clerk at the store told officers the man walked into the gas station holding a black bag, a baseball bat and a red plastic gas can. He ordered the clerk to put money in the bag and said if the clerk didn't comply he would burn the gas station down, Walters said.
The clerk complied, police said.
The unidentified man then ran out of the gas station with an unknown amount of money and got into a red Ford Fusion four-door and drove away.
No one was injured in the robbery.
Anyone who has information about the robbery is asked to call Det. Sergeant Rafael Alvarez at 925-833-6682.
