Tyler police are searching for a man who attempted to rob a Tyler gas station early Tuesday morning.

It happened at the Pac-N-Sac gas station at 403 South Southeast Loop 323 around 12:30 a.m. When officers arrived they were informed by the clerk that a male suspect entered the store armed with a pocket knife.

The suspect walked around the counter and demanded money.

The female clerk was armed with a taser and refused to comply with the suspect. She then threatened him with the taser and chased him out of the store.

The suspect fled the scene southbound on foot. Nothing was taken during the robbery and no injuries were reported.

Officers searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect.

This is an active investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the Tyler Police Department as soon as possible.
