Holiday Station Store robbed at gunpoint

The Holiday gas station in Dickinson was robbed at gunpoint at about 1:37 a.m. on Tuesday, according to press release from Dickinson Police Department Capt. Joe Cianni.

A white male entered the store carrying a black, small caliber semi-automatic handgun. He demanded cash from the clerk and threatened them with the gun, which he pulled from his pocket, according to the report. The clerk gave the man an undisclosed amount of cash from the tills. The man took the money and left the store on foot heading northeast.

The suspect had a hood pulled over his head and his face was partially covered so only his eyes, nose and forehead were visible. He wore a dark, possibly black, coat or hooded sweatshirt and designer-type blue jeans. The suspect is believed to be between 20 and 30 years old, about 5’8” tall with a thin build and darker hair, according to the report.

The police reported that there were no injuries during the robbery and the public is not believed to be in immediate danger.

The gas station, which is located at 231 Museum Drive, did have surveillance video which is now being analyzed. The police may release photos of the suspect in the coming days and more information may be available as the investigation continues.

The Dickinson Police Department asks that anyone with any information regarding the robbery call 701-456-7759 ext. 1.
