Police say a man who tried to rob a Washington Road gas station Monday evening could be linked to a robbery there over the weekend.

Police were called to BP at 3011 Washington Road about 9:30 p.m. after the panic alarm was activated. Rich­mond County sheriff’s Sgt. Dan Carrier said a black man in a gray hoodie and jeans entered, placed a plastic bag on the counter and said, “You know what this is. You know what to do.”

The clerk pressed the panic alarm, and the man fled. A weapon was never displayed.

Carrier said the man’s actions matched those in the earlier successful holdup.

"You know what to do"

Yes you do. You pull out a gun from under the counter and blow the sonofabitch into eternity.
