Police from the 114th Precinct in Astoria are searching for a gunman who allegedly tried to rob a Dutch Kills gas station last month.

The incident occurred on the night of Thursday, March 23, when the suspect entered the Quality Fuel and Go mini-mart, located at 37-45 21st St., just after 10 p.m.

The unidentified man approached an employee and pulled out a handgun while demanding cash and property, police said. The worker refused to comply and the suspected gunman fled the scene in a red sedan that was last seen heading eastbound on 38th Avenue. There were no injuries reported.
