A gas station clerk was battered after trying to stop a pair of shoplifters Thursday night. The 29-year old ran out of the BP gas station, 4222 E. Washington Ave., and was yelling for the thieves to pay for the beef jerky, the sandwich, and cigarettes they had just stolen. The suspects turned around and charged the clerk, both delivering blows to his head, and knocking him to the ground. He believes, while down, he may also have been kicked. Eventually, the injured man was able to get back inside his workplace and lock the door. He provided very good descriptions of his assailants and they were spotted going into Motel 6, 1754 Thierer Rd. The unregistered guests were found in a room and arrested. A woman, who was with them, was also taken into custody after she began yelling and swearing in a hallway, disturbing guests.
