PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) -- In an effort to reach a store cash register quickly, a robbery suspect showed bold behavior when he jumped the counter and pushed a clerk to the ground.
According to police, the Shell Gas Station on Valley Street in Providence was robbed at 2:12 a.m. Monday.
The cashier told police a "black or dark skinned Hispanic male walked into the store and immediately jumped over the counter and pushed" them to the ground.
The suspect then allegedly opened the register and took an unknown amount of cash along with the cashier's phone.
No one else was in the store and it's unclear what direction the suspect fled to.
The suspect is described as being approximately 6'3" wearing a black or blue hooded sweatshirt with a white shirt underneath, blue jeans with a distinct cut on the left leg of the pants and white sneakers.
It's not clear how much money was stolen.
But, police searched the surrounding neighborhood for clues.
