Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Police are looking for a suspect involved in a robbery at the Citgo Gas Station that occurred late Thursday evening.

Authorities were called to the gas station along the 2800 Block of East 2nd Street on the report of a robbery. Officers say that it was reported that the suspect may have had a weapon of some sort, but it was not a firearm.

According to the clerk, a younger man, described as being white, about 5' 4'' tall and wearing dark colored clothing walked into the store and up to the counter. The clerk says that as they opened the register, the suspect allegedly reached across the counter and grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash.

The Superior Police Department is investigating this incident and is asking for the public's help in locating the suspect.

If anyone was in or around the store at the time of the robbery, they are asked to contact the Superior Police Department.

Authorities say that it is unclear if this robbery is connected to the robbery at the ICO earlier this week.
