DO YOU SEE EVERYTHING? A robber stabbed a Fair Lawn gas station employee with a screwdriver before escaping with $ 550, said police, who sought public help to find him.
The robber slapped a second victim in the face when telling them he had no money, Sgt. Brian Metzler said Monday.
The robber came to Woroco Gas on Maple Avenue just after 10 p.m. Friday and asked for a gas can, Metzler said.
He then hit a 31-year-old Fair Lawn employee in the back of the head, pulled a screwdriver from the waistband of his waistband, and stabbed him four times in the left arm, wounding him several times, the sergeant said.
The robber – described only as black and wearing a black shirt and black baseball cap – attacked a 42-year-old Fair Lawn resident while on the run.
Police met in the area and brought a K-9 to locate him.
The Fair Lawn Volunteer Ambulance Corps responded, but both victims refused to receive medical care, Metzler added.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or has surveillance images or information that may help catch the robber is asked to contact Fair Lawn Detective Sgt. Nick Snyher: (201) 794-5410.
