ELLENDALE, Del. – Delaware State Police troopers are searching for a man who attempted to rob an Ellendale area gas station late Sunday night.

On Wednesday police released surveillance photos of the suspect.

According to police, at approximately 9:45 p.m., a man entered the Country Corners Exxon Market on Beach Highway with a handgun, confronted the 18-year-old male employee, and demanded cash from the register. The clerk refused to hand over any money and then chased the suspect out of the store, where he was last seen running eastbound on Beach Highway, troopers said.
