The owner of a gas station in Deer Park says he was robbed Sunday night.

Police are only saying they received a 911 call around 8 p.m. and responded to the Valero station on Bay Shore Road.

The owner of the gas station says the robber was wearing a Halloween mask and holding a knife.

Surveillance video shared by the owner shows the robber coming into the gas station, going around the counter and taking money from the cash register.

The owner says the robber ran off with the entire drawer from the register, stealing more than $500.

News 12 was told that no one was hurt, but the employees are shaken up.

The owner says this is the second time in a year that the gas station has been robbed.
