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.
Authorities said the front end of the truck went over a metal and concrete barrier and got stuck. The man with the cow mask ran, police said.
The truck owner suffered a gash on his forehead and was taken to an area hospital by ambulance.
