JAMESTOWN, N.D.-The Jamestown Police Department is still searching for an adult male who robbed the Jamestown M&H gas station and attacked an employee who was opening the business early Saturday morning.

Sgt. Brian Miller said Sunday afternoon there was no new information to provide in the case. He said the investigation is ongoing.

At approximately 4:38 a.m. Saturday an employee at M&H gas station contacted police to report that the store had been robbed by a man who displayed a weapon and accosted her.

The employee was outside preparing the store to open at 5 a.m., Lt. Justin Blinsky said. She was approached by the masked suspect, who knocked her to the ground before ordering her to go back into the store.

Once inside the store the suspect displayed a weapon, Blinsky said. The employee complied with the suspect's demands to hand over an undisclosed amount of cash, and the suspect left the store shortly after, he said.

"The employee did what she was supposed to do and followed commands and did not resist," Blinsky said. "The is the best procedure to do when confronted by someone with a weapon."

The employee did not suffer serious injuries but was obviously shaken by the robbery, Blinsky said. The employee was taken to the Stutsman County Law Enforcement Center to provide a statement.

The suspect is described as a male, approximately 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, with a large, heavy-set build. No information on race or age was given other than the suspect appeared to be between 20 and 40 years old.

Jamestown Police Department is investigating this case. Stutsman County Sheriff's Office is assisting in the investigation that is ongoing. There is no connection between this robbery and any other crime locally or regionally at this time, he said.

If anyone witnessed a person walking in the vicinity of the gas station at 325 1st Ave S. before or after the time of the robbery on Saturday, call 252-1000 or 252-2414 to report any information. A photo of the suspect may be available in the future, he said.
