Waukesha police are searching for a male suspect who robbed a local gas station Monday morning, April 10.

According to a news release from the department, the man robbed the Clark Station at 304 N. Grand Ave. around 8:48 a.m. and fled south before officers arrived. He implied he had a weapon and made off with an unspecified amount of cash, the release said.

The incident is the latest in a string of armed robberies throughout the city. In January, two men – Anthony Deleion and Mitchell Gamroth – were charged with sticking up two local gas stations in less than a week; in February three Waukesha residents jumped a man and held a gun to his head in search of drug money; and in March two unidentified suspects held up the Aldi supermarket at 1663 Arcadian Ave.
