VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A gas station clerk was punched in the face multiple times by a shoplifting suspect, officials said.
It happened just before midnight on January 1, 2019, when two unidentified black males entered the AM/PM, on 7th and D Streets in Victorville.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez told Victor Valley News one of the males placed a non-alcoholic beverage in his pocket.

Following the assault, both suspects then fled the location in a red vehicle and have not been identified as of this time.
The employee declined medical attention at the scene.
