MILFORD - Police are searching for a suspect in an attempted armed robbery at a Milford gas station.

Authorities say the incident happened at around 11 p.m. last night at Patriot Fuel on Post Road.

Police say a man with a handgun came into the station and demanded money, but when another person entered the store, the suspect got scared and fled.

The store's security footage captured the entire minute-and-a-half incident, investigators say.

Police are investigating if a white SUV seen pulling out of the gas station is connected to the attempted robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to call Milford police at 203-878-6551.
