Masked men hold up gas stations

August 15, 2013

Police believe a trio of masked men is responsible for two armed robberies of area Speedway gas stations early Thursday. Cumberland police say the men robbed the station on German Church Road at 1:05 a.m., hitting an 18-year-old clerk in the head with a gun. About 45 minutes later, three masked men entered a Speedway at 62nd Street and Allisonville Road and were confronted by a customer. One of the men punched the customer in the face before the group fled to a white Pontiac sedan in a nearby parking lot.
