Tacoma police were searching for a man who robbed a South End gas station at gunpoint Tuesday night.

The robbery occurred just before 9:20 p.m. at the 76 gas station at 8235 S. Hosmer St.

The man entered the store and robbed the clerk at gunpoint, police reported. The man then left on foot in an unknown direction.

A police dog searched but did not find the robber.

  2. Holy crap, it shouldn’t be too hard to identify him, he’s 5 foot 1 to 5 foot 3! I laughed out loud when it said “with a heavy build”!

  3. I agree with paulkathyann,this sounds like the carjacker!
