NORWOOD, OH (FOX19) -

Norwood police are asking for the public's help to identifying an armed gas station robbery suspect.

"We need to identify this person and get him locked up before he hurts someone," they wrote on their Facebook page Tuesday morning.

The suspect entered the BP Station on Madison Road about 4:30 a.m. June 26.

Police say he was armed with a gun and tapped the counter twice with his firearm.

When the clerk began to retreat, he told the clerk: "Don't run or I'll shoot you," according to police.

The clerk opened the cash drawer, retrieved the money, placed it on the counter and backed away.

The suspect grabbed the cash and ran off.

A few minutes later, a medium-size sport utility vehicle without its headlights on was seen driving from the area toward Wasson Road.

Anyone with information or who recognizes the suspect is asked to call Norwood Police Detective Jeff Barger at 458-4540, or email him: jbarger@norwoodpolice.org.
