Police are asking for the public's help in finding the man responsible for a Friday morning robbery and assault at a Rochester Hills gas station.
The incident occurred at the Sunoco at Rochester Road and M-59 at 3:45 a.m. Friday.
According to a report from the Oakland County Sheriff's Office, a man walked into the gas station and ordered the attendant to give him cash. "The attendant refused, and the suspect struck him one time in the neck causing him to fall back," the report stated. As the attendant fell, the suspect took the cash drawer and fled the scene, according to the report. No weapon was seen.
When sheriff's deputies arrived on the scene, they searched the area for the vehicle but could not find it.
The man escaped in a grey vehicle driven by a second man. According to surveillance camera images from the gas station, the four-door sedan had a license plate that read, in part, "CDU" and the driver's side tail light was out.
The suspect is described as a 6-foot-tall man weighing about 180 pounds with brown hair and scruffy facial hair on his face and lip. He was wearing a grey hoodie. There was no description of the driver.
Anyone with information is requested to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAKUP or the sheriff's office at 248-537-3516.
