Man wielding a weapon robs gasoline station

January 31, 1994

A man armed with either a knife or a screwdriver robbed a Pasadena gasoline station early yesterday, escaping with an unknown amount of cash, police said.

The night manager of Ed's Shell, at Mountain and Jumpers Hole roads, told police the man walked quickly into the convenience store part of the service station about 12:45 a.m. and started bending down behind the front counter.

The robber, who was wearing a nylon stocking over his head, pulled out what the manager described as a knife with a long blade or a screwdriver and demanded money. He took the money from the cash register and left, running east on Mountain Road.

Police described the robber as black, 25 to 30 years old, 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall, 140 to 150 pounds, wearing a black ski hat and dark clothing.
