On November 25, 2022, at approximately 9:00 AM, an employee was opening a business on the 27xx block of N 5th St when an unknown male, who stated in Spanish, that he was waiting for the store to open so he could play a video game inside. Once the employee and suspect entered the store, the suspect pushed the employee behind the counter and removed a hammer from his waistband demanding money then struck the complainant in the back with the hammer causing a bruise. The employee then opened the register for the suspect and after taking an undetermined amount of money the suspect fled in an unknown direction.
