Gas Station Robbed by Man With Knife

A knife-wielding man robbed a Moorpark gas station early Thursday morning, authorities said.

The 18-year-old female clerk at the Shell gas station at 301 W. Los Angeles Ave. was shaken, but unharmed in the 3 a.m. robbery, said Sgt. Mark O'Donnell of the Ventura County Sheriff's Department.

The robber, described as about 6 feet tall, weighing 180 pounds and dressed in dark clothing with a dark covering on his head, threatened Crystal Deharo with a knife and demanded money, deputies said.

After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash the man fled on foot, deputies said.
