Three men, one armed, robbed the Clark Super Station on Highway 10 in Detroit Lakes of an undetermined amount of money early Monday. Station attendant Dave Koski told police three men entered the station via a rear entrance at about 3:30 a.m. and one jammed a revolver into his midsection and said, “We want all the money.” Koski said they threatened to kill him if he reported the holdup so he waited about 15 minutes after they left before calling the police. He said all of the men wore face- masks.
