Toledo police are looking for the man they say tried to rob a West Toledo gas station.
The man went to the Marathon gas station at 3819 Haverhill Drive, about 5:19 a.m. Sunday and began browsing store merchandise. The man — who police say is black, about 5 feet, 10 inches; and was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, and gray sweatpants — then pulled out a knife and demanded money from the clerk.
The clerk hit the man with a baseball bat, which caused the man to drop the knife and a beverage, according to police.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers 419-255-1111.
