Police say they are searching for a man who robbed a gas station late last night.

We're told the robbery happened at the Admiral Station on the corner of Front and Barlow Streets in Traverse City, around 10:30 last night.

Police say the robber pushed one of the store clerks into a back room and locked him in.

Then, he handed a female clerk a backpack, and demanded money from the cash register.

Police tell 9&10 News, the suspect left the gas station on foot heading eastbound.

A K-9 Team didn't have any luck tracking him down.

The employees were not injured.
