The Gulf Gas Station on Main Street was robbed of several hundred dollars Thursday evening at approximately 10:45 p.m., according to Reading Police. The suspect was described as a white male, approximately six feet tall and 180 pounds. He was wearing black pants, a black sweatshirt with a hood and a mask.
The suspect made it a point to show his black handgun to the clerk before he took several hundred dollars.
Police believe the suspect "matches the description of the suspect from recent armed robberies in Melrose, Stoneham, Woburn and Winchester."
Police from all five towns are working together to track down the suspect. There aren't any photos or videos available at this time, but if you have information regarding any of the recent robberies please contact Detective Michael Saunders at 781-942-6767.
