An employee of a local Stripes Convenience Store was assaulted during a robbery by what may have been a former employee.

KAMC News reports that Lubbock Police responded to the Stripes in the 500 block of Frankford Avenue. This was just before 3 a.m. the morning of Saturday, July 16th. Police arrived and found the victim hiding in the back room with a knife.

The employee says that they were held at gunpoint by the suspect, who demanded that they open the register and safe by the register. The employee thought that the suspect could have been a former employee based on how they gave specific instructions relating to the register and safe.

At some point, the employee was allegedly struck on the side of the head by the suspect, causing them to fall over. This was all caught on surveillance footage.

No arrests have been made in relation to this case as of Thursday, July 21st.
