A robber is being sought after he jumped behind the counter of a Hopkins gas station this month and threatened an employee before grabbing cash and fleeing.

Police hope a $500 reward will bring in the tip needed to catch him.

Sgt. Mike Glassberg said officers were called at 2:40 a.m. Feb. 10 to the Holiday station at 530 Blake Road. By the time they arrived, the suspect was gone.

The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. Anybody with information is asked to call Hopkins police at (952) 258-532.
