A McMinnville convenience store clerk suffered injuries during an armed robbery Tuesday night.
The incident happened just before 10 p.m. at the South Chancery Street On the Way Market.
The clerk told responding officers that a masked man approached him when he began walking to his car after closing the business. At one point, the unknown subject placed a handgun to the clerk’s head and demanded money. Police officials said the assailant fled on foot after pistol whipping the clerk and taking his wallet.
The victim received treatment for minor injuries at a local hospital.
