Police request help after Affton gas station hit with two armed robberies

Police are asking for the public’s help locating suspects after two armed robberies at the same Affton gas station.

The Circle K Shell station at 9998 Tesson Ferry Road has been robbed at gunpoint twice in recent months, at about 11:15 p.m. Nov. 12, and at roughly 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 12.

It is unclear if the two robberies are related, St. Louis County Police spokesman Sgt. Brian Schellman said. In both cases, the suspects are black men ranging from 5 feet, 4 inches tall to 5 feet, 8 inches tall. Both times, the robber threatened the clerk, shoved an object that could have been a handgun into the clerk’s back and took off with an undisclosed amount of money.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the St. Louis County Police Department at (314) 615-8695.
