INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Indianapolis Metropolitan police say a man wearing a mask threatened a gas station employee with a gun and then flipped off the clerk after being denied money.

The robbery happened on April 21 at the Exxon located at 2605 E. Raymond St. The man withdrew a black semiautomatic handgun and pointed it at the clerk. However, the clerk was standing behind a bulletproof glass enclosure and refused to give up anything.

The masked intruder then gave an obscene gesture to the clerk and left the store.
