BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD)– Battle Creek police have identified a suspect in connection to a brutal hammer attack on a gas station clerk.
It happened around 3:30 a.m. on Dec. 28 at the Citgo gas station in the 400 block of Capital Avenue NE.
Disturbing surveillance video shows a robber repeatedly hit the clerk with a hammer while the victim scrambles across the convenience store’s floor, trying to get away.
