An Arco gas station in Palo Alto was robbed earlier this week, according to police. A male suspect walked into the gas station at 699 San Antonio Road around 10:10 p.m. on Wednesday, held up a gun and demanded money from the clerk, police said.
The clerk complied and gave him an unspecified amount of cash from the register, after which the suspect fled on foot, police said. Officers responded but were not able to locate him. No one was injured inside the business. The suspect is possibly white or Hispanic, standing at about 5 feet 6 inches tall, with a medium build. He was wearing a black hooded jacket and blue jeans.
