The Starkville Police Department is searching for an unidentified man who held up a gas station at gunpoint.
Officers responded to the 1101 North Jackson St. B-Quick at 11 p.m. Friday after a man allegedly walked in the store, brandished a revolver and demanded cash.
He fled the scene to the south with an undetermined amount of money, a SPD release states.
No one was injured in the incident.
The suspect is described as a 6-foot-tall African-American male with a slender build. He was wearing black pants, gray sneakers, a surgical mask and a black hoodie with a white T-shirt over it at the time of the incident.
Police cobbled together the description by using witness accounts and the store’s surveillance footage.
If you have any information on the identity of the suspect, call SPD at 662-323-4131 or Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers at 800-530-7151.
