The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help in finding a man who robbed a gas station in the Town of Fishkill on Monday.

The robbery took place around 11:30 p.m. when a light-skinned male walked into the Gulf gas station on Route 9 and displayed a handgun and demanded money, said Capt. John Watterson.

After getting about $300 from the clerk, the man left the store on foot. When police arrived on the scene, the man was gone and a K-9 track did not pick up his scent.

The clerk was uninjured during the robbery.

The man is described as being 5-foot-9, with a skinny build, wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt and armed with a black pistol, Watterson said.

He was last seen leaving the station on foot heading north on Route 9D.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Kate Capalbo at (845) 486-3829. The Sheriff’s Office can also be contacted via the tipline at (845) 605-CLUE (2583) or dcsotips@gmail.com , all information will be kept confidential.
