CANTON, Ohio - A Canton gas station was robbed at gunpoint for the second time this week, the Stark County Sheriff’s Office said.
Just before 4 a.m. Thursday, a man with a ski mask covering his face went into the Circle K/Dunkin’ Donuts on Fulton Road.
The man, armed with a sliver revolver, ordered the donut clerk to the ground and took money from the register, before stealing from the gas station register.
The robber was about 5 foot 7 to 5 foot 9 with a thin build, deputies said. He was wearing a hooded-sweatshirt, a black Northface coat, jeans and white tennis shoes.
The same location was robbed on Tuesday at about 1:42 a.m., but this time, there were three suspects. Deputies Chief Deputy Rick Perez said only one of them was armed.
They robbed the Dunkin’ Donuts clerk and kicked a 40-year-old customer after forcing him to the floor, deputies said.
Anyone with information should call the Stark County Sheriff’s Office at 330-430-3800.
