A gunman tries to rob a RaceTrac gas station in Pembroke Park two nights in a row.

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. -

Broward Sheriff's Office deputies are asking for the public’s help identifying a man who robbed a Pembroke Park gas station earlier this month and tried again the next night.

It happened Feb. 9 at the RaceTrac on Pembroke Road.

Deputies said the man got away with almost $200, but he wasn't so lucky when he tried to do it again the next night.

That same man entered the gas station, pointed a gun at the clerks and demanded money. This time, however, a clerk thought the gun was fake and called him on it.

"Are you going to rob me with a toy gun?" the clerk asked.

The man then left empty-handed.

Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
