A customer at a Shell gas station in Chesterfield is being credited with foiling an attempted robbery.
Just after ten Monday morning, police say a suspect walked into the station, pointed a gun at the cashier, and demanded money. A customer started walking up to the station and that caused the suspect to run into a waiting car and speed away.
Police have released images of the suspect as well as the escape car. Anyone with any information should contact Detective Ovca or Detective Brandt at the Chesterfield Police Department 636-537-3000 or Crime Stoppers 866-371-8477.
