Hubbard County and Park Rapids authorities are searching for a uniquely described armed robber that held up the Holiday Station Store in Park Rapids early Thursday – four feet tall and of Asian descent.

The robber brandished a pump-action sawed off shotgun at the clerk and demanded money about 4:45 a.m.

The suspect fled on foot wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, dark gloves and white tennis shows. It is believed the culprit headed north on County Road 1.

Officers were in the process of setting up a perimeter around the Highway 34 station and viewing store surveillance tapes.

The public is asked not to approach the person, but to call 911 instead.

Hubbard County’s K-9 officer Oakley and his handler Sgt. Dan Kruchowski, were on the scene trying to pick up a scent.

The store manager, when viewing the video, told police the man, believed to be 20-30, may have been a regular morning customer who allegedly pilfered coins from a change jar.

A statewide bulletin was issued at 7 a.m.
