Gas station robbed at gunpoint

A clerk at a gas station on the 4700 block of Hyde Park Boulevard told police that two men robbed him at gunpoint about 11:45 p.m. on Monday.

The clerk said he was stocking a cooler when the two men came in. One of them pointed a semi-automatic pistol at him and told him he had 10 seconds to jump over the counter and open the cash register drawer.

While the clerk went to the register, one of the men grabbed cigarettes and other items. The clerk said he was forced to hold a bag open for the suspect as he poured cigarettes and related items in.

In total, the suspects got away with $600 and about $400 in cigarettes and cigar wrappers.
