FELTON, Del.- Delaware State Police are asking the public's help in identifying a man wanted for holding up a Felton area gas station early Tuesday morning.

Troopers said that shortly after 3 a.m. the man entered the Canterbury Shore Stop, located at 8953 S. DuPont Highway, and confronted a male clerk who was standing behind the sales counter. Investigators said the man, who was armed with a handgun, then demanded money from the store’s cash register. The clerk complied with the man's demands and turned over an undisclosed amount of money to him. The man then ran out of the store and was last seen heading in a northbound direction. The clerk was not injured, investigators said. 

Troopers said the robber was described as white, between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-11, 155-175 pounds, of average build, and a bald head. He was last seen wearing a grey T-shirt, black shorts, dark colored sneakers, and had what appeared to be a T-shirt wrapped around his head.

Anyone with information about this incident, or who knows the identify of the robber, is asked to contact Detective Matthew Addonizio at (302) 697-4454. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
