JPD investigating attempted robbery at gas station

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - While a Jonesboro woman pumped gas Wednesday morning, she said a man pumped her for cash then pulled a gun on her.

The 39-year-old victim said the attempted robbery happened around 8:15 a.m. at Main Stop Gas, 207 N. Main.

She told police while she was pumping gas a white man with "curly, dirty blond hair pulled up in a bun" approached her and asked for money.

After telling him she did not have any cash, the man reportedly pulled out a black handgun and demanded money.

The woman said the man put the gun away and left when another customer pulled up to a nearby pump.

She last saw the man walking west around the building.

No arrests have been made.
