TWO GAS STATIONS ROBBED IN EDISON OVER WEEKEND IN EARLY MORNING:

The attendant, who was not injured, saw a gold colored sedan head south on Route 1..........
What is going on with the continuous gas station robberies in Edison? There has been way too many over the recent years and recently. It seems to be getting worse and out of control! Yet again, over the past weekend, two innocent, hardworking, attendants, were threatened and/or robbed by criminals with guns! An attendant WAS ABLE TO TAKE DOWN LIC. PLATE, AND SEE ROBBERS POSSIBLE GET-AWAY CAR , A GOLD COLORED SEDAN FLEEING ONTO ROUTE 1, according to news article. So what is the problem? Why isnt a suspect in custody? I remember a recent robbery a few months ago, in which the attendant of Fuel One (Route 1), was shot in the leg area, even after handing over the money. A particular gas station: Raceway on Route #1 North, near Woodbridge Ave, has been robbed a ridiculous, countless, amount of times in the recent years, where the armed & dangerous robbers have fled into the nearby residential neighborhod. Recently, Raceway enhanced their security and Edison passed a law requiring all gas stations to have newer security cameras which definetly helps and im sure the police are doing whatever they can to fight these and other crimes. I think some type of plan needs to put this to some type of stop.Something has to be done to try and help stop these dangerous crimes and others. Citizens should try and keep a closer eye out on these stations , whether driving by or living near a station.

Edison gas station attendant robbed
EDISON — Police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred at the Fuel One gas station on Route 1 south last week.

The incident was reported at 9:15 p.m. on Sept. 22, police said.

Police Lt. Sal Filannino said the 19-yearold gas station attendant told police that two suspects approached him on foot, and one then struck him on the side of his head with a silver gun.

The suspects then led the attendant to the office area and demanded money. The suspects fled with approximately $1,400 in cash and the victim’s cell phone.

One suspect was described as a stocky black male, approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall, wearing all black clothing, a fishermanstyle hat and black gloves. The second suspect was described as a black male with a medium build, approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall, and wearing dark clothing. Both suspects were wearing dark bandannas covering their faces up to their eyes.

Edison police investigate robbery at gas station
EDISON — Police are investigating a strong-arm robbery reported last week at the Raceway gas station on Route 27.

The gas station employee told police that a white or Hispanic male approached him from behind at 9:57 p.m. Sept. 9 and asked for cigarettes. When the employee placed the cigarettes on the counter, the suspect told him to open the cash register and pointed what appeared to be a gun at him from inside his jacket.

The victim refused to open the cash register, however. The suspect then grabbed the cigarettes and fled the scene.

Police said a review of surveillance tape showed the suspect as a man with a medium to heavy build, about 5 feet 10 inches tall with short hair. He was wearing white sneakers, black shorts with white stripes on the side, and a brown or tan zip-up fleece jacket. The suspect had the collar of the jacket covering part of his face, according to police.
