Cranston Police are looking for a man and woman who allegedly robbed the Mobil gas station at 1282 Elmwood Ave. early Saturday morning.

The male suspect reportedly used a piece of wood with nails sticking out of it to threaten the female store clerk and demand money.

The woman reportedly held the door open for the man as he took an undetermined amount of money from the cash register and a pack of cigarettes.

Both fled on foot heading east on Park Avenue.

The man is described as white with bluish gray eyes. He is between 25- and 30-years-old and was wearing a plaid jacket, gray hooded sweatshirt, jeans, blue Nike sneakers and a white piece of cloth covering his face.

The female suspect is described as slim, wearing blue jeans, a black hooded sweatshirt that covered her face and blue canvas sneakers with white laces. 

If you have any information about the suspects, call Cranston Police Det. Lee Sohn at 401-477-5147.
