KCSO searching for man in armed robbery at Knox Co. gas station

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office said its investigating a Thursday morning armed robbery at a gas station.

KCSO said a man holding a handgun approached a clerk at the Breadbox at 1606 Lovell Road around 3:22 a.m. Thursday. The man demanded money from the register, and ran from the scene on foot.

Authorities believe the man is the same suspect who robbed the Rocky Top Market at 2064 Castaic Lane last Thursday.

The man was wearing a black beanie-type hat, sunglasses, a white dusk mask, an olive green jacket, a dark-colored shirt, dark gloves, dark pants and boots.

Anyone with information is asked to call KCSO’s Major Crimes Unit at (865)215-2243.
