PARAMUS, NJ – A gas station attendant was robbed at gunpoint on Sunday by a suspect after he had finished filling the man’s gas tank.

Police responded to a BP gas station in Paramus after receiving a report of an armed robbery.

According to police, the gas station employee reported that a male suspect driving a grey or tan color sedan had asked to have his car filled with fuel before the robbery.
