LOCKPORT – A man displayed a knife and demanded money at 3:20 p.m. Sunday in a South Transit Road gas station and then fled in a car parked nearby, according to the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office.

A thin white man about 5 feet 9 inches tall, believed to be in his 20s, wearing a blue knit hat with a Sabres and Labatt Blue logo and a coat with a large British flag on the back was photographed on camera during his stop at the NOCO Express Store, 6233 S. Transit Road.
