KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Surveillance video acquired by KCTV5 shows an armed robber approaching a man pumping gas in Kansas City.

The incident happened at the BP gas station E. 45th Street and Cleveland Avenue just before 6 on Friday morning. 

A man, who is wearing black in the video, was pumping gas when the robber, wearing a checkered shirt, rushed toward him. The man had a bag on his hand, covering what appeared to be a gun. 

The victim ran off in one direction on foot and the robber walked off in the other direction. 

At this time, it doesn't appear that the robber made off with anything.
