The Shell gas station on Loudon Road was allegedly robbed by a masked man who reportedly handcuffed the clerk and put a pillowcase over his face.

Police were called to the station around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday to the report of a robbery – the clerk was able to contact a police officer passing by as he fled the store, according to police.

During the incident, the suspect reportedly went into the store and contacted the clerk. He then took the clerk outside, placed the pillowcase and handcuffs, and put the clerk in the passenger side of his vehicle, authorities said.

The suspect then went back in the store where he allegedly began filling pillowcases with store merchandise. The clerk was able to escape and contact police. The suspect allegedly took off before police arrived, according to police.

The suspect is described as a white man about six feet tall with a medium build. He was reportedly wearing a black Carhartt-style jacket and a black face mask. He also had a green and black-colored drawstring backpack, police said.

Police said they are continuing to investigate, and they don’t believe there’s a threat to the public. Anyone who was driving in the area around that time, or anyone with information related to the incident can call police at (603) 225-8600.
