BRAWLEY — Police here arrested a 24-year-old Riverside man for allegedly robbing a gasoline station Sunday morning.
Brawley police Lt. John Myers said a man walked into the USA Gasoline station at 201 Main St. about 1:20 a.m. and asked for a pack of cigarettes.
When the clerk opened the cash register, the man put his right hand inside his front right-side pocket and demanded the money in the register.
Myers said the clerk, thinking the man had a weapon, placed the money tray on the counter. The robber took the money and fled.
