An armed robbery at the Sunoco Gas Station on the east end of Martin Street in Rome is under investigation, according to local law enforcement officials.
Sheriff’s deputies said a Black male entered the store in the city’s outer district shortly before
9 p.m. Thursday armed with what appeared to be a handgun.
The Sheriff’s deputies said the robber demanded cash from the store clerk and then fled the building with an undisclosed amount of money.
The thief wore a black hooded sweatshirt and white pants.
The gas station is on the east end of Martin Street, just north of the overpasses for routes 49 and 365.
Anyone who may have been in the area Thursday night or has information on the stick-up is asked to call the Criminal Investigation Unit at 315-765-2737.
All calls will be kept confidential, authorities said.
