EAST GRAND FORKS, MN (WDAZ-TV) - Police are still investigating a robbery at the Orton's Tesoro station.

Police released pictures of the suspect taken from surveillance footage.

They say the suspect was riding a blue bicycle.

The amount of money stolen is not known.

Police say they thought they knew who the robber was, but after checking with a few suspects, it turns out they need your help.

The robbery happened on Saturday night between 8 and 8:30 while the cashier was away from the register.

"The clerk re-entered the store and was unaware that the theft had even occurred until a customer came in to purchase some items and then the clerk realized that the cash register had been emptied," EGF police department Lt. Rodney Hajicek said.

If you have any information, call East Grand Forks police at 218-773-1104.

The same station was robbed in early September by a man wearing a ski mask and wielding some type of knife. Police have yet to arrest a suspect in connection to that burglary.
