Police are hoping surveillance video will help catch the man they say robbed the BP gas station on Four Mile Road in Richmond.

It happened just after 8 p.m. Wednesday night. The suspect is seen on the store's surveillance video walking into the gas station wearing a disguise and pulls out a knife. Police say he demanded money, put the cash in a bag and left, without harming the two cashiers who were working.

The suspect is around 5 foot 9 inches tall, and was wearing a pair of sunglasses, brown scarf, and a brown and red striped toboggan.

He left the store on foot headed in an unknown direction. K-9 Units searched for the man but he wasn't found.

Police say businesses should be prepared for the possible increase in crimes like this right now.

"We hope that's not the case, but it is that time of the year, and these are hard economic times," said Sgt. Willard Reardon with Richmond Police Department, "we encourage businesses to do the proper things like have cameras - it helps us."

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Richmond Police.
