Linden Gas Station Robbed

LINDEN – A robber struck a West St. Georges Avenue gas station on Wednesday afternoon, police said.

Officers responded to the Exxon Station on Aug. 19 at 5:46 p.m. The station employee told police that he had been robbed by a man wearing a white do-rag on his head, a white t-shirt and blue jeans. The robber entered the convenience store and patted a bulge in his waistband, the employee told police.
