A man who pulled a gun and attempted to rob Holly’s gas station in Saco on Monday got no money, but did get his face bitten by an employee’s dog.

An employee of the gas station at 952 Portland Road, who was holding onto his dog at the time, refused to hand over any money and the dog lunged for the robber, according to a news release by police Deputy Chief Jeffrey Holland.

After being bitten on both sides of his face, the would-be robber ran out of the store toward Flag Pond Road and got into a pickup truck waiting by the side of the road, Holland said.

The robber is described as 5-feet-10-inches tall and weighing about 180 pounds. He wore a navy blue hooded sweatshirt with the word “Gap” on the front, black pants, grey and black gloves, a black winter hat and a dark green mask with an orange liner covering the bottom of his face.

Police are asking that anyone who saw the pickup truck, described as a newer model light blue Chevrolet Silverado extended cab, around the time of the 3:35 p.m. robbery to contact the police department at 282-8216. The truck was last seen headed north on Flag Pond Road.
