BOSTON (WHDH) - A store clerk in Boston’s North End is recovering after a violent robbery.
The owner of the convenience store on Cooper Street said that a man held his employee at gun point before taking off with cash between 9 and 9:30 p.m. Thursday.
The suspect allegedly forced the clerk to stuff money into a bag and hit him in the back of the head with a gun.
“He tried to make him scare. He pushed his head,” the owner said.
The suspect looked to be wearing a bright orange or red hat with nothing covering his face, according to the owner.
The owner said that he did recognize the suspect because he has been a customer before.
