NATCHEZ — A gas station on U.S. 61 North was robbed Sunday night — with a bottle of beer.

A man entered Christine and Henry’s Conoco station stating he was waiting for a friend to come pick him up, Natchez Police Chief Mike Mullins said.

The man then walked to the back of the store to one of the refrigerated coolers and grabbed a bottle of beer.

He walked up to the counter and bludgeoned a customer in front of him with the bottle of beer.

He stole behind the counter and demanded the cashier to open the register.

Mullins said the cashier opened the register and the man took a small amount of cash before running out of the station.

“We have a suspect and the investigation continues,” Mullins said.
