Police are investigating an aggravated robbery where a man held a Pine Bluff gas station clerk at gunpoint, security footage shows.

An Arkansas gas station's clerk was held at gunpoint by a robber who stole cash from the business Tuesday night, police say.

According to a news release from the Pine Bluff Police Department, the clerk told officers that just before midnight, a man wearing a red hoodie with gray pants and gloves entered the Valero Gas Station at 3000 E. Harding Ave.

The robber reportedly pushed a customer out of the way and ordered the customer to get down. He then threatened the clerk with a handgun, coercing the employee to open the safe, which the store's security footage shows.

The robber made off with cash and the clerk's cellphone, according to authorities. The phone was recovered in the parking lot.

Police have named no suspects, and no arrests had been made at the time of the report.
