Fresno Police are still on the hunt for the man who robbed a gas station in Northwest Fresno early this morning.
It happened at the Chevron on Brawley and Herndon around 4 a.m.
The suspect walked in, approached the cashier and demanded money, cigarettes, and lottery scratchers.
“He was actually pretty funny. He goes I’m actually here to rob you, this is a hard time for me, I said dude I understand completely what would you like? you’re the one with the gun in your hand, I have no control what would you like? He said ‘I need cigarettes, scratchers and money’,” explained Jacob Ramirez, the Chevron clerk who was held at gunpoint.
Ramirez says robberies in Northwest Fresno happen quite frequent.
“He was very irate, acting super crazy, waving the gun around, pointing it at my face, threatening to kill me, kill my wife.”
Ramirez said the business across the street gets robbed almost every week.
“I was really scared but other than that, you have to deal with it one grain at a time and you can’t freak out in these situations, you can’t freak out, you have to knuckle up, bite your teeth and not say anything stupid, really,” Ramirez said.
Ramirez said the suspect left the areas Southbound on Brawley.
He said he saw him drove a newer black Cadillac Escalade
Around 5:30 a.m. police found an abandoned vehicle, about a mile away, that matched the description the clerk gave.
