Police believe man who robbed an east side gas station at gunpoint was casing another business minutes before the Saturday night robbery.
Madison police responded to reports of an armed robbery at the PDQ at 4741 Lien Road just after 11 p.m., officials said. A man armed with a handgun demanded money and fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. No one was injured.
The robber was reportedly seen casing another nearby business, but an employee was able to secure the main entrance to the business so he couldn’t get inside, according to the release.
The man is described as white, 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet tall with a thin build. His age is unknown, but he was last seen wearing an orange hooded sweatshirt and a ski mask. In addition to the handgun, he was carrying a backpack.
Madison police ask anyone with information to contact the Madison Police Department or the Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014.
