Woman held up at gas station Thursday

NICE – Officials are looking for a man who allegedly held up a woman at a gas station this week.


A woman pumping at the Marina Market on Highway 20 was robbed just after 2 p.m. Thursday, according to Capt. James Bauman of the Lake County Sheriff's Office.


Bauman said the woman, a 55-year-old Lucerne resident, was at the gas pumps when a male subject approached her.


The man allegedly told the woman to hand over her wallet; he also told her that another subject was parked behind the market with a gun, according to Bauman.


The frightened woman handed over her wallet to the man, who disappeared behind the market, Bauman said.


She then heard a vehicle start up and leave, but Bauman noted that she never actually saw the vehicle come out from behind the market.


Bauman said the suspect is described as a Hispanic or American Indian male who is in his 30s, with a husky build, shoulder-length black hair and a tattoo on his neck. He was reportedly wearing a navy blue hooded sweatshirt.


The stolen wallet, Bauman said, contained about $1,000 in cash as the woman was on her way to the post office to pay some bills with money orders.


If anyone has any information on the case they should call the Lake County Sheriff's Office at 262-4200.
