Suffolk County Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a man who attempted to rob an Eastport gas station last month.

At approximately 11:35 p.m. on Monday, March 11, a man brandishing a knife entered the Valero gas station on County Road 51 and demanded money from an employee, police said. The clerk hit a panic alarm and the man fled the scene with no proceeds, according to a press release on Monday.

Police said that he ran north and entered a vehicle waiting near the intersection of County Road 51 and Eastport Manor Road. Police are asking anyone with information to contact Suffolk County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. Police are offering a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
