SAN ANTONIO – A cashier at a Valero gas station experienced a scary ordeal overnight after police say a robber brandished a gun and demanded money from the cash register.

The incident occurred just before midnight at a Valero gas station in the 1200 block of Austin Highway, not far from Rittiman Road on the city’s Northeast Side.

According to police, the robber entered the store and pointed a gun at the cashier’s face while demanding money.

Police said the cashier gave the robber the cash drawer, who then immediately fled the scene.
