Around 12:40 a.m. yesterday morning, a lone man brandishing a handgun robbed the BP gas station located on Mary Grubbs Highway in Walton. While doing so he also assaulted the clerk by punching and kicking her in the face.
The robber is described as a white man, 25 to 30 years old wearing glasses with a goatee, medium build, wearing a blue Michigan Wolverines hoodie with maize colored lettering and stripes running lengthwise on the outside of the sleeves. Additionally, he was wearing a blue and grey striped knit hat, blue jeans and brown work boots.
The clerk reported seeing a dark colored SUV speed out of the lot. He held the gun in his left hand the entire time. It appears as though he has a tattoo on the outside of his right hand and possibly on the right side of his neck.
Anyone with information as to the identity of the man is asked to call either Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040 or the Boone County Sheriff’s Office at (859) 334-2175.
