INWOOD, W.Va. - An armed man walked into an Exxon station next to the Inwood exit along Interstate 81 Saturday night and ordered an employee to give him money, a West Virginia State Police spokesman said.

Although the man showed a handgun during the 10:40 p.m. holdup, no one was hurt, Trooper R.D. Eshbaugh said.

The man ordered an employee to give him money from a cash register and the worker handed over $332, Eshbaugh said.

The man ordered the workers to look away as he left the store, Eshbaugh said.

Eshbaugh said he believes a camera in the store recorded a clear image of the man.

Anyone with information about the robbery may call state police at 304-267-0001.
