A 73-year-old attendant at the BP station on the 1800 block of East St. Georges Avenue told police that he was robbed at gunpoint shortly after 5 a.m. on Nov. 3. A man, approximately 5 feet, 6 inches tall, who was wearing a black mask, black jacket and blue jeans, knocked on the booth door and pointed a handgun at the attendant when he opened it. The robber demanded money in Spanish, and took $200 from the attendant. A second suspect, described as a black man approximately 5 feet, 11 inches tall, entered the booth and stole several packages of cigarettes and cigars.
Both men ran across East St. Georges Avenue into Roselle, towards Warinanco Park.
Linden police are asking anyone with information about the robbery to contact Det. Ken Mikolajczyk at 908-474-8542 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
