SANTA ANA (CBSLA.com) – Police are searching for a man caught on security video assaulting a clerk and vandalizing a Santa Ana convenience store last month.
The fit of rage unfolded at the 7-Eleven at 1020 S. Bristol Street early morning on Aug. 25.
The manager said the man became irate after he was told he could not buy beer at 3 a.m.
He assaulted the clerk, shoved displays and items off the front counter and smashed the lottery machine.
Then he took a baseball bat and bashed all the store’s front windows before taking off.
The damage was estimated at $2,000.
Anyone with information on the suspect’s whereabouts should call police at 714-245-8647.
Nine months ago, a robber with an AK-47 held up the store. That bandit is also still on the loose.
