SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (WTNH)– Police are searching for the suspect who allegedly attempted to rob a South Windsor gas station at gunpoint on Wednesday night.

Police say that at around 8:17 p.m., a suspect wearing an orange ski mask ented the Valero Gas Station at 180 Sullivan Avenue. The clerk wasn’t at the counter so the suspect then went behind the counter and attempted to open the register on his own.
