• Connellsville gasoline attendant robbed at knifepoint


    CONNELLSVILLE, Pa. - State police have been searching for a motorist who robbed a southwestern Pennsylvania gasoline station attendant at knifepoint.   

    Troopers from the Uniontown barracks say the suspect pulled up to the gasoline pumps at the Honey Bear Sunoco station in Bullskin Township about 1:50 a.m. Sunday as if he planned to buy gasoline.   

    When an attendant approached the car, the driver got out and threatened the clerk with a kitchen-style chef's knife.   Police say the attendant gave money to the suspect, who then drove away on Route 982.   

    The attendant wasn't hurt during the heist.   The gas station is about 35 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
