Masked Robber Beats Clerk

Written by Associated Press on June 18, 2014

ALOHA, Ore. (AP) – A sheriff’s spokesman says a robber wearing a surgical mask attacked a female clerk as she was locking up for the night, hitting her in the head with “something very solid and heavy.”

Washington County sheriff’s Sgt. Bob Ray said the 32-year-old clerk reported that when she fell to the sidewalk early Tuesday, the man ran in, grabbed lottery tickets and a small amount of cash, and fled.

The clerk at the business in Aloha, west of Portland, was taken to a hospital with what Ray called significant but not life-threatening head injuries.

Deputies searched the area with a K-9 without success.
