An armed man held up a Mobil gas station in East Hills Monday morning and escaped with an unknown about of money, Nassau County Police said.  The suspect is still at large.

The unidentified suspect pressed a black firearm against a gas station employee’s back and demanded money, the cops said. The employee complied as he was “fearing for his life” and the suspect fled from the gas station at 449 Glen Cove Road with the money, according to the Nassau police. No injuries were reported.  The man left the scene using the North Service Road.

The suspect is described as a white man, about 5-foot-7, with an average build. He was wearing a black ski mask, camouflage sweatshirt, black pants, white sneakers and black gloves.

An official from the police’s public information office said there was no additional information at this time and the investigation conducted by the Robbery Squad detectives was ongoing.

Detectives are requesting that anyone with information about the incident contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS or call 911, with all callers staying anonymous.
