A RaceTrac clerk got into a scuffle with a robbery suspect and threw him out of the store, according to a DeKalb County incident report.
The incident happened at the RaceTrac at 2294 Rock Chapel Rd. in Lithonia. Two clerks were at the sandwich cooler around 2 a.m. on Jan. 10 when the suspect came into the store with his right hand under his shirt.
The suspect brought the workers behind the counter and demanded that the clerk give him money from the cash register. From the other clerk, the suspect demanded change and cigarettes, the report states.
After he saw the small bills from the register, the suspect told the first clerk to open the safe. When the clerk refused, the suspect slapped him on the head with his hand, according to the report.
The clerk and the suspect then got into a "tussle," the report states, and the clerk forced him out of the store.
The suspect, who didn't take any items from the store, took off in a white Chrysler Sebring heading on Union Grove Road.
He was described as a black male wearing a skull cap, navy blue sweatshirt, blue jeans, pink bandanna around his mouth, mark over his left eye which could be a tattoo and purple sock over his left hand.
