For the second time in two weeks, an unknown male subject robbed a gas station in Des Plaines, according to Des Plaines police.
A man entered the Shell gas station, 1605 S. River Road, and demanded the cashier give him money from the register on Thursday, Des Plaines police stated. The clerk gave the man some cash and he fled the scene on foot, police stated.
