NORTH OLMSTED, OH -- Police say the BP gas station on Lorain Avenue was robbed Monday night.
The robbery happened around 8 p.m. and was caught on camera.
The surveillance video shows the suspect walking in and going right around the counter. The suspect then pointed a butcher knife at the clerk and demanded she open the cash register.
She quickly complied and it didn’t take long for him to collect all the money and leave the store.
“He is armed, he is dangerous, so be careful,” said Detective Dan Barrett with the North Olmsted Police Department.
Little information is being released about the suspect, but police did say he’s somewhere in his 20s.
“We believe we have him identified. A warrant has been issued for him, so we're just out looking for him right now. Hopefully we'll get him soon,” said Detective Barrett.
He said the suspect stole a car right before the robbery. The victim was a 94-year-old man. He was walking to his apartment when the suspect grabbed his keys and took off in his Honda CR-V.
"No injury to the elderly male. He just kind of batted his hand away and grabbed his keys from the door,” he said.
The CR-V is a 2008 model and is grey in color. The license plate # is 609WWD.
Anyone with information on this crime should call North Olmsted Police.
