LA MESA (CNS) - A clerk was roughed up and injured when his 7-Eleven convenience store in northern La Mesa was robbed Sunday.
The clerk was working at 5746 Amaya Drive, near Severin Drive, and told La Mesa police he was mopping when a man entered the store, reached over the counter and grabbed two packs of Marlboro cigarettes.
When the man attempted to leave without paying, the clerk hit him with the mop handle, according to the La Mesa Police watch commander.
The suspect and clerk began throwing punches. The suspect's elbow struck one of the front store windows, and broke it.
The struggle continued outside of the store, where a second man helped free the first man from the clerk's grasp. Both suspects were last seen running
west on Amaya Drive.
The victim received treatment for a black eye at the scene.
The first suspect was described as a Hispanic male, about 18 years old, with medium length brown hair and wearing a gray tank top and shorts. The
second suspect was a white male, about 18 years old, with a medium build and wearing a blue button down shirt.
