    DELMONT, Pa. - Delmont police say the man and women in the surveillance video above robbed a Sunoco gas station early Saturday morning at gunpoint.

    "I hope they find the person cause the lady they robbed last night was my grandma,” Greenwald said.

    She said the man came into the store around 1:45 a.m. in and demanded money from her grandma who works the night shift.

    "Said he had a gun, had her hand over the register, pulled money out and took off,” Greenwald said.

    The surveillance video obtained by Channel 11 shows the suspect at the register. Police say he's between 20-30 years old.

    He was wearing a black and white checkered jacket with a hood, a black cap and a bandana over his face.

    He told the clerk he was on drugs and would shoot if he didn't get the cash.

    "He took off toward Dairy Queen's parking lot and was gone,” Greenwald said.

    The woman, police said, came into the store just a few minutes before the robbery. She told the clerk she forgot her credit card to pay for her items and left the store.

    Police believe she was just scoping out the place for the suspect.

    The woman is between 20 and 30 years old, and is considered a person of interest. She was wearing a purple zip-up sweatshirt, black-rimmed glasses and black/gray pants. 

    "Right now, they're doing facial recognition on the female,” said Greenwald. "They're also doing fingerprints on the bag she brought up to the counter. So, they most likely have her identity."
        
    Police said a white or gray cargo van was spotted leaving the area after the robbery.

    Anyone with information is urged to call the Delmont Borough Police Department at 724-468-8501.
