Atlanta Police said a clerk was apparently stabbed before a robber left with the cash register from a convenience store.
A store clerk was stabbed several times during an armed robbery in Atlanta’s West Midtown area early Sunday afternoon, police said.
According to Atlanta Police Sgt. John Chafee said officers were called about a injured person at the M Street Corner Market located at 950 Marietta Street.
The caller advised that someone had been shot. When officers arrived, Chafee said, they found a man who appeared to have been stabbed several times.
The preliminary investigation indicated that a man entered the store and assaulted the store’s clerk before leaving with the cash register.
During the incident, Chafee said, a witness entered the store, and after observing the robbery in progress, called police.
The clerk was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition, suffering from injuries to his head and back.
