The Plant City Police Department is seeking a man who robbed a gas station at gunpoint on Tuesday.

According to police, this is what happened:

About 4:38 p.m., a white man entered the BP gas station, 2010 N. Wheeler St. After waiting for the other patrons to leave the store, the suspect approached the counter with an 18-pack of beer. He pointed the gun at the clerk and demanded she give him the money from the register. After the clerk complied, the suspect fled on foot.

The suspect was described as being in his late 30s, 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-7 with a slim to medium build, short dark hair with a mustache and wearing a green shirt with blue jean overalls and a white cowboy hat.
