7-Eleven Clerk Assaulted During Robbery


Metal Pipe Used During Robbery

Nanaimo RCMP are looking for a man they say beat a store clerk with a metal pipe during a convenience store robbery in the early hours of Friday.

Police responded to a 911 call at 3:24 a.m. that an armed robbery had happened at the 7-Eleven store at Townsite Road and Terminal Avenue.

The suspect reportedly entered the store and immediately ordered the clerk to open the cash register and then lie on the floor.

The man took cash from the till and some cigarettes. The suspect then "viciously struck the clerk across the head with a metal pipe," said Sgt. Sheryl Armstrong of the Nanaimo RCMP. The suspect then fled. Despite immediate containment of the area by the RCMP and the use of a police dog, the suspect was not located.

The clerk was taken to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital where he was treated for his injuries, then released.

Police are looking for a man described as a Caucasian, approximately five foot 10, with a skinny to medium build. He wore black pants, white shoes and a red jacket and carried a black bag. The suspect's age is not known. Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or anonymously online at www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com.
