PHOENIX -- A reward is being offered to help locate a suspect who robbed a Chevron station early Monday morning.

According to police, the suspect entered the Chevron store at 32nd Street and Thomas Road at approximately 4:40 a.m. and asked the clerk if he could cash a check.

When the clerk told him no, the suspect said, "This is a robbery Bro, you have 5 minutes to give me everything" and "I got people out here waiting."

Police said the suspect kept his right hand behind his back, but no weapon was seen or displayed.

The clerk handed over the money and the suspect fled on foot.

The suspect is described as a black male, 30 years old, 6 feet tall and 180 to 200 pounds. He was wearing a gray or white beanie cap, black jacket and light pants at the time of the robbery.

Police released surveillance photos and video from the robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or silentwitness.org. A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered in the case.
