Police in Peterborough are looking for a suspect in connection with a gas station robbery early Friday morning.
The Peterborough Police Service says around 2 a.m. officers were called to a gas station on Chemong Road after an employee reported that a man initially entered the store, selected several items and placed them on the counter.
The suspect then requested a large number of cigarettes and lottery tickets, however, the employee refused.
It’s alleged the suspect then came around the store counter and verbally threatened the clerk before filling two garbage bags with cigarettes and lottery tickets. The suspect then fled the scene on a bicycle.
