CAHOKIA, Ill. (KSDK) - Surveillance video from a Cahokia gas station robbery has been released.
Investigators say Kathleen Jacobs, an employee at a BP gas station along Camp Jackson Road was re-stocking shelves Wednesday night but forgot to lock the door where the cash register is located.
The robber walked in, punched the clerk several times in the head, grabbed money from the register, and left.
"I was scared. My heart was racing. I even told him I was nervous. he was yelling at me I was like I am nervous I can't press my numbers in. You got to calm down," said Jacobs.
Jacobs has several bumps and bruises but is expected to be okay.
"It could have been much worse," said Jacobs.
Police are still looking for the suspect, and hope someone who sees the surveillance video knows who he is and calls CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS.
