Police are looking for a man who robbed an Exxon gas station on McKnight Road around 11 a.m. today and took off with about $400 in cash.

No one was injured in the incident.

"It was dead -- this guy came up and he had his right hand in his hoodie pocket and he walked in and looked around to make sure there was no one there with me," said Caralin Fohl, the only employee on duty at the time.

"He just told me open the cash register and told me to get on the ground face down," Ms. Fohl said. "It was a very scary experience, to say the least."

Ms. Fohl, who has worked at the McKnight and Nelson Road station for more than four years, said she didn't recognize the robber as a regular customer.

Police said the suspect is a 20-year-old white man who was wearing a black hat with the Penguins logo and a green-hooded sweatshirt.

He did not say he had a weapon, according to Ms. Fohl.
