Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - Syracuse Police asked you to be ‘On The Lookout’ earlier in the week for a gas station robber, but we've learned the thief took more than cash the night he robbed the Sunoco on Wolf Street in Syracuse.

He also stole something very precious and priceless from the store clerk - memories.

It was just before closing time at the Sunoco gas station located at 800 Wolf Street, when a suspect Caught On Tape made his move.

Robin Martin was behind the counter when suddenly a gun was pointed at her face and then in her back.

“He said 'open this door now.' I said I don't have a key. He said 'open it or I'll shoot you right now. Open it.' I said I don't have a key and that's when he made me and told me to lay on the floor or he would shoot me, and not to move,” Martin said.

Martin did exactly what she was supposed to do. While the suspect didn't physically hurt her, he hurt Martin emotionally when he stole her cellphone containing memories of her deceased husband.

“I had my husband's video in it, when he was alive, before he died, and that's the only memory I have. I would like to have my phone back,” Martin said. “It meant a lot to me.”

If you can help Syracuse Police identify the suspect and help Martin receive her Cricket phone and memories back, you are urged to take action and call (315) 442-5222. All tips will remain strictly confidential.
