ALEXANDRIA, Minn. (KNSI) Police in Alexandria are searching for a man who robbed a Super America gas station Tuesday night.

The robbery happened a few minutes before midnight. The suspect--armed with a handgun--entered the store and asked the clerk for money. Then he forced the clerk into a storage room where he tied up her hands and ankles and left the building.

A police K-9 tracked the suspect for a short distance, but he got into a vehicle and left the area.

The store clerk had minor injuries. She was treated and released from the Douglas County Hospital.
