WEST VALLEY CITY -- West Valley City police are looking for a man who assaulted a convenience store clerk Saturday morning.
Police say the man walked into the 7-Eleven at 2321 S. Redwood Road around 9 a.m. He headed to the back of the store, grabbed three cases of beer, and then tried to leave.
Lt. Bill Merritt of the West Valley City Police Department explained, "He was stopped by the store owner. Unfortunately, when he was stopped, the suspect turned around and punched the owner in the face with a case of beer."
The man received a deep cut on his face that required stitches.
The thief took off in a red, early ‘90s Tahoe or Suburban with a light-colored stripe across the bottom. The SUV did not have license plates.
