Middletown Township Police are seeking the public's help in locating a suspect wanted in connection with the robbery of a New Jersey gas station last month.
Police say an unknown suspect pulled up to the 76 Gas Station in the Belford section of the township on Aug. 15 at 7:25 p.m. and asked for $10 in fuel.
After paying the attendant, the suspect allegedly grabbed the attendant's apron, which had cash in it, and dragged the attendant approximately 35 feet toward Route 36.
The apron ripped away, and the suspect fled north on Route 36, taking approximately $1,500 in cash, police say. The apron has "Fuel One" written across the front, police said in a Facebook post.
Police describe the vehicle as a white, four-door 2009-2012 Toyota Corolla LE with tinted windows, no wheel covers and no visible license plates. They say the vehicle was driven by a black subject, possibly male, and an unknown passenger.
Anyone with information regarding the incident, the vehicle or the subject in question is encouraged to contact police at (732) 615-2100 or Detective Albert Scott at (732) 615-2009. Information can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
