An older white guy pulled a knife, got in a fight with a clerk, and then ran off with the cash register from the Citgo gas station at 626 Rogers Street tonight about 11:45 p.m.
The clerk was taken to the hospital, though I’m told he wasn’t doing too bad. He just got into a fight with the bad guy. He wasn’t stabbed.
Police found a knife at the scene, and are looking for a white male, 40 to 50 years old, with white hair. He wore a navy blue sweatshirt without a hood, jeans, and a navy blue hat.
He fled south on Rogers Street (Route 38), toward Tewksbury, in a white car. Someone was waiting in the car while the guy who I described went into the station, according to police radio broadcasts.
