MONTVILLE, NJ – An armed robbery occurred at the Delta Gas Station on Rt. 202 in Towaco Tuesday evening, according to Police Chief Andrew Caggiano.
Montville Township Police were called to the station just before their 10 p.m. closing time on Aug. 25, Caggiano said, after two employees reported that four people wearing masks approached them.
“One person had a hand gun and another had a knife,” Caggiano said the employees had reported. “They threatened the two employees and demanded their money, and the employees complied. The suspects then fled the scene in a dark-colored four-door vehicle.”
Caggiano would not release how much money was taken. Social media reports say that one attendant was struck by one of the robbers. Caggiano did confirm that one attendant had a minor injury and was treated at the scene.
Police are requesting anyone with information regarding this crime to please contact the police department’s Detective Bureau at 973-257-4300.
