HIALEAH, Fla. – Hialeah police have identified a suspect who is wanted in connection with an armed robbery that was reported Sunday night at a Chevron gas station.

The robbery was reported shortly before 9 p.m. at the Chevron at 2060 E. Fourth Ave.

According to an incident report, a man, identified by police as Darshiel Pratt, 30, grabbed a soda from the coolers inside the store and then went to the counter and gave the clerk cash for the drink.

Police said Pratt then placed a handgun on the counter and began to point at the register when the clerk opened it, making a comment the clerk did not understand.

She said Pratt ran away after the robbery.
