Police are looking for leads to help them nab the masked robber who struck at a Port Hardy gas station.

Shortly after midnight, March 8,  Port Hardy RCMP responded to a robbery at the Port Hardy Esso Gas Station.

Employees reported an unknown male entered the store, wearing something over his face to conceal his identity.

The suspect was between 5-ft 10-in and 6-ft, medium build, dressed in blue jeans, a dark coloured hoodie-style sweatshirt and light-coloured, skateboarding-style shoes.

The male was successful in his robbery attempt and fled the store with an undisclosed amount of money.
