JOHNSTON, R.I. (WPRI) —- Police in Johnston are investigating a robbery at a gas station late Monday night.

Newly released surveillance video obtained by Eyewitness News shows what appears to be a white male with a bandana covering part of his face walking into the Mobil gas station at 1897 Plainfield Pike around 11:30 p.m. robbing the store clerk.
