The York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office is asking the public’s help in identifying a man suspected of robbing a gas station on Saturday morning.

A man wearing all black clothing and a light-colored surgical mask entered the Tabb Exxon on the 3100 block of Big Bethel Road around 6:45 a.m. Saturday.

The suspect, described as either a tan white man or light-skinned black man, showed a silver-and-black handgun to the clerk and demanded cash from the register, according to a news release posted to YPSO’s Facebook page on Monday.

After taking the contents of the register, the suspect ordered the clerk to the ground then fled toward the neighboring car wash, the release said.

Anyone with information should call the Crime Line at 888-LOCK-U-UP or the Facebook tip line at 757-890-4999.
