FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — A gas station off Dupont Road on Fort Wayne’s north side became the victim of a reported armed robbery on Friday, leaving the owner of the gas station irritated by the “senseless” act.
Adam Dager, owner of the All-American Shell gas station at 513 E. Dupont Road, said someone had been loitering around the gas station for almost two hours before brandishing a gun on a 16-year-old clerk working behind the counter around 5:30 p.m.
Dager said the suspect also threw a vape package at the clerk before stealing a pack of cigarettes and roughly $200.
Surveillance footage from inside the gas station shows the suspect, who appears to be a white male with brown hair who is dressed in brown sweatpants and a blue sweatshirt with a white towel draped over his head.
Police provided further information to WANE 15 Friday night, saying that the suspect is likely in his mid-20s or early 30s, has a scar on the right side of his neck and is missing teeth.
Dager said one of the more frustrating aspects of this incident is that his 16-year-old employee had to be involved.
“It’s just so senseless. The kid is 16 years old,” Dager said.
Dager said he just hopes that the suspect is apprehended and that authorities “throw the book at him.”
“I think he will be caught,” Dager said.
Anyone with information regarding this incident should contact the Fort Wayne Police Department.
