Video: Outer Sunset gas station robbed at gunpoint

The armed robbery of an Outer Sunset gas station last month was captured on surveillance video released by police on Monday.

The footage shows an unidentified man pulled out a handgun while at the counter of a gas station on La Playa Street near Lincoln Way and pointed the weapon at the attendant the morning of Dec. 13.

Once the clerk opened the register and backed away, the suspect walked around the counter and pulled out some $400 in cash from the till and a nearby counter where money was stored, police said.

The suspect, described as a man in his 30s, about 5-feet-10-inches tall, weighing 190 pounds, then quickly exited and fled south on La Playa Street around 10:20 a.m., police said.

He was last seen wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans and black shoes with white colored soles, police said.
