Dallas police are investigating a convenience store robbery in which a group of teens attacked a clerk.
A large crowd of young people entered the store about 10:15 p.m. and began throwing bottles at one another.
When the clerk confronted them and tried to close the door, someone in the crowd punches him, knocking him to the ground.
“Once they got me on the ground, I thought they were going to kill me,” C.J. Thomas told Channel 8’s Monika Diaz.
