MPD: Shell gas station robbery possibly related to previous crime

MADISON (WKOW) — Madison police are searching for a man they say robbed a Shell gas station early Tuesday morning.

Police say it happened around 1 a.m. at the Shell station on University Avenue. The clerk working at the store reported that a man entered the store alone, and came behind the counter while holding a knife. He took an undisclosed amount of cash from the register and then fled the store. No one was hurt.

Madison Police believe this robbery appears related to the robbery that occurred at the same location on September 2. The suspect is described as a Hispanic man, approximately 20 years old, 5’9" to 5’10"  with average build, wearing a white hat.

The investigation of this incident is ongoing. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Madison Police Department or the Madison area Crimestoppers program.
