SAN ANTONIO – It was a scary ordeal for a Northwest Side convenience store clerk after a man threatened to take her life during a robbery early Wednesday morning, San Antonio police said.

The incident occurred just before 7 a.m. at a convenience store in the 10200 block of Dover Ridge, not far from Loop 1604 and Shaenfield Road.

According to police, a man wearing a black hoodie, red pants and a mask with a cow pattern entered the store and stole some cigarettes.

Police said the man grabbed the clerk by her sweater and threatened her just before she ran and locked herself inside a back office.

SAPD said the man exited the store and somehow ended up in a pickup truck that belonged to a customer. While struggling over the steering wheel, the truck ended up doing circles in the parking lot and crashed through one end of a neighboring wooden fence and then out the other, police said.
