An armed bandit held up this gas station in Glendale last month.

Police continue to search for the armed robber who quenched his thirst for cash by robbing a gas station in Glendale last month.

The NYPD released video footage of the suspect wanted for the stickup, which took place at 12:01 p.m. on May 22 at the Gulf station located at 73-38 Cooper Ave., near 73rd Place.

According to authorities, the perpetrator — described as a black man between 40 and 50 years of age and weighing between 200 and 220 pounds — walked into the station, approached a 58-year-old male employee and asked for a Gatorade sports drink. The suspect then displayed a firearm, demanded cash and pushed the victim into a nearby chair.

Police said the worker complied with the suspect’s request and handed over $1,000. The bandit then fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction. The incident was reported to the 104th Precinct.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery or the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
