Gas station robbed at gunpoint

Bridgeport police were searching Thursday night for two men who flashed a gun and stole cash from the register of a gas station in the western part of the city before fleeing toward the highway.

Police said the robbers hit the BP gas station at the corner of Fairfield and Clinton avenues a few minutes before 9 p.m. One of the men showed a small black handgun.

The robbers reportedly fled on foot down Elmwood Place then got into a dark-colored vehicle and fled toward Interstate 95.

Police said the suspects also stole cigarettes before the fled. They were described as wearing hooded sweatshirts, masks and white gloves.

There were no reports of injuries from the incident, which store employees said had been captured on surveillance video.
