Central Ohio Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for anyone with information leading to an arrest in a gas station robbery and assault on November 28, 2012.
According to police, a maroon minivan with a female driver and male passenger pulled into the Swifty Gas Station located at 5280 Westerville Road, at about 10:15 p.m., on November 28.
Officers say the male passenger got out of the vehicle and walked towards the gas station's restrooms located at the side of the building. He then yelled for the gas station attendant to come unlock the bathroom door.
As the employee neared the restrooms, the suspect began to assault the attendant, demanding cash, according to police.
The employee handed the suspect money from the business, and the suspect then fled on foot to the gas station adjacent the Swifty, where the female driver in the minivan picked him up.
The male suspect is described as a heavy-set black male, between the ages of 18 to 30, who is 5 feet 8 inches tall. He had neatly trimmed facial hair.
The female suspect is described as a heavy-set black female, with a medium complexion. She is between the ages of 18 to 30, and between 5 feet 2 inches and 5 feet 6 inches tall. She was last seen wearing a pink jacket.
