LARGO — Police are asking the public's help in identifying a man who robbed a Hess gas station last week in Largo.

The man walked into the store at 2930 East Bay Drive, at about 10 p.m. Jan. 7, police said. Inside, he pointed a handgun at a clerk and demanded money. He later fled the store on foot.

Largo police posted surveillance images of the man Wednesday on the department's Facebook page. He is described as black and about 5-feet 11-inches tall, police said. During the robbery, he wore a black hooded sweatshirt, gloves, and a mask.

Anyone with information about the man's identity is asked to call Largo police at (727) 586-7776.
