LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police are looking for a man who flashed a gun, robbed a gas station, and took off in a stolen car early Tuesday.

According to LMPD spokesman Dwight Mitchell, officers responded to a robbery call at the Circle K at 8801 Third Street Road around 7:30 a.m.

The clerk tells us the suspect was wearing a toboggan when he showed her a gun and demanded cash.

Mitchell says the suspect took the cash and left in a stolen car that was was later located in a ditch in the Windsor Lakes subdivision -- which backs up to Waverly Park. The suspect, described as a white male, about 5'6" and weighing 160 pounds, then ran into Waverly Park.  
When last seen the suspect was wearing a white T-shirt. 

All entrances to Waverly Park were blocked for about an hour while police and K9 units searched for the suspect, but they had to scale down the manhunt to answer other calls. 

This was the second time police searched for suspects after an armed robbery on Tuesday. Two armed gunmen stormed a McDonald's on South Hurstbourne at Interstate 64 a few hours earlier, around 3 a.m.

Police are still searching for the suspect. Anyone with information on either robbery is asked to call the LMPD crime tipline at 574-LMPD.
