On Sunday, the Paso Robles Police Department responded to the 7-Eleven convenience store at 2331 Spring Street for a reported theft. Officers learned that two male suspects entered the convenience store at approximately 1:30 a.m. Both suspects selected alcohol from a display case and concealed the alcohol on their persons.
The store clerk witnessed the suspects concealing the items and confronted both suspects as they attempted to exit the convenience store. Suspect No. 1 was able to exit the store with stolen alcohol and fled the area on foot. The store clerk attempted to detain suspect No. 2 who refused to return the alcohol.
Suspect No. 2 began violently punching the store clerk in the face, following the clerk as he retreated behind the counter, then intentionally knocked over a display case and then grabbed additional merchandise before fleeing out the front of the store and leaving the area on foot.
