Police are looking for a man they say robbed a gas station early Friday morning.

Sgt. Ben Hoster says police responded around 1:30 a.m. to the Valero gas station near 64th Street and Thomas. Police said a man entered the store with a handgun and demanded money from the register.

The clerk gave him cash, and the suspect left the store heading west on Thomas in a dark-colored SUV.

Police said the suspect is described as a Native American man, between 185 and 215 pounds and 25 to 30 years old. He has a scar over his right eye and wore a black rag over his face, police said.
