VIDEO: A Convenience Store Clerk Was Brutally Beaten With a Hammer During a Robbery Yesterday

Categories: Crime
A clerk was working alone at the AZ Mart convenience store on Military Parkway in Pleasant Grove when a man walked in. He was a regular customer, police say, but this time he carried a large knife and demanded cash.

When the money didn't immediately appear, the man stabbed the clerk in the neck, then began wailing on him with a hammer. The attacker, described by police as a 5-foot-11-inch, 210-pound black man, then walked from the store with an unknown amount of cash.

The clerks called a friend or family member -- police reports don't say which -- who found him sprawled out behind the counter, bleeding. They called 911, and the clerk was taken to Baylor Hospital, where he remains in critical condition.

Anyone with information should contact Detective Shelton at 214-671-3612 or Crime Stoppers at 214-373-TIPS.

We must ban all assault hammers immediately!  Why would anyone need an assault hammer!

>>The clerks called a friend or family member...<<

>>A clerk was working alone...<<

Which is it?  A single clerk or multiple?  This is the kind of grade school mistake I've come to expect from Eric.

I get all my Dallas news from the DO. Y'all sure are crazy and violent. How you put up with the bullshit is beyond me. No wonder you drink so much.

Doesn't this stupid criminal know he's supposed to use a gun to commit his crime? There should be a law!

New law, maybe even a Constitutional Amendment: Crimes can only be committed with guns; then we can outlaw guns and crimes will vanish!

I'm sure one of the insulated white liberals that read this blog will be able to identify this negro in a hood in the hood..


Maybe Jim Shutze can? He's always writing about the hood so he must spend a lot of time there right?

Getting hammered in Dallas can be a negative thing.

Clearly, we need convenience store control, because unlimited public access to convenience stores kills people.
