A Watertown gas station was robbed at gunpoint by a man wearing a mask and dark clothing. 

On June 20 after 9 p.m. a man robbed Belmont Street Auto Service on Belmont Street in Watertown, said Watertown Police Sgt. Tom Grady.

“A worker was approached by an African-American male, average build, wearing a black and white mask, a black winter hat, a black jacket, black pants and white sneakers,” Grady said.

An unknown amount of cash was taken from the gas station.

“The suspect fled on foot toward Arlington Street,” Grady said. “The attendant ran the opposite way and called his boss.”

Police were called about 15 minutes after the robbery, at 9:51 p.m., Grady said.

The suspect could not be located, and police are investigating the incident.
