Frustrated robber punches clerk

November 30, 1993

A robber frustrated because he couldn't force open a cash drawer punched and choked the clerk at a gas station on Mountain Road early yesterday, then made off with an envelope of money that was next to the cash register, county police said.

The man, disguised with a stocking over his face, walked into the Mobil station in the 4100 block of Mountain Road at 12:30 a.m. and demanded money from the clerk.

He tried to force the cash drawer open, but when he could not, he punched the clerk and continued to demand money, then grabbed the envelope and ran out the door.

The victim described the bandit as a white man in his early 20s, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 185 pounds with short, dark hair and wearing a dark shirt and jeans.
