Attempted robbery at Perham Tesoro

Local authorities are on the lookout for a would-be robber who fled from the Perham Tesoro gas station last night.

According to Perham Police Chief Jason Hoaby, a man entered the Perham Tesoro, located at 940 Palubicki Avenue, at 11:46 p.m. The suspect demanded money, Hoaby said, but did not show a weapon or make threats. When employees resisted, the man fled the scene.

No one was hurt in the incident, and no money was stolen.

Hoaby said the suspect was wearing a mask, coat and gloves to hide his identity.

The suspect remains at large, and the incident is under investigation.
