A man robbed a Southwest Side gas station Tuesday morning, with the suspect telling the employee harm would come if money wasn’t forthcoming.

The robbery happened at about 10:50 a.m. at the Citgo gas station, 453 S. Gammon Road, next to West Town Monona Tire, Madison police said.

Nobody was injured.
