The man allegedly robbed an Arco gas station in Dixon at around 6 p.m. on Monday.

About 6 p.m. Monday, a man in his 30s walked into the gas station’s convenience store at 2800 W. A St., brandished a handgun at the clerk and demanded money. He fled after the clerk handed over an unspecified amount, according to a Dixon Police Department news release.

Security cameras showed the man to be about 5 feet 11 inches to 6 feet 1 inch tall with a thin build and black hair, mustache and goatee. He appeared to be wearing tan pants, a white belt, a gray hooded sweatshirt and a black-and-gray beanie.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery is asked to contact the Dixon Police Department’s Investigations Unit at 707-678-7070.
