Police are looking for a man who robbed an Atascadero gas station early Monday morning.
Atascadero Police say around 3:19 a.m., officers responded to the Shell Gas Station in the 8000 block of Morro Road after reports of a robbery that had just happened.
Police say a man picked up some items from the store and when he got to the counter, he threatened the clerk, demanding money from the register.
Police say the robber was last seen running west on Morro Road.
Officers searched the area, but could not find him.
He is described as a white man in his mid 20's, wearing a red baseball hat, baggy jeans, a white hooded sweatshirt with black markings, and black and white sneakers.
Police say he may have tattoos with large block-style lettering on both of his hands.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Atascadero Police Department at (805) 461-5051.
