Circle K gas station in south county robbed at knifepoint


The Circle K gas station at 1940 Union Road was the scene of an armed robbery Tuesday.

According to the St. Louis County Police Department, at approximately 2:13 a.m. Feb. 26, the department received a call for service about a suspect who had threatened the clerk at the Circle K with a knife, demanding money.

The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of money as well as cigarettes as he fled the area.

Committing a robbery using a knife is classified as armed robbery, the same as using a gun. No injuries were reported.
