Flash Mobbery Dallas… Black Youths Storm Store & Assault Clerk (Video)
A flash mob stormed the Exxon Tiger Mart in Dallas last week.
They robbed the store and beat the clerk in the parking lot.
It was an ordinary night, August 26, at the Exxon Tiger Mart at South Polk Street and Interstate 20 in Dallas.
C.J. Thomas, the store’s clerk, was behind the counter when a rush of customers came through the door at 10:12 p.m.
“There was more coming in than going out,” Thomas said. “Once they realized how many were in there, one of the students started throwing stuff and screamed out. Everything after that went crazy.”
Store surveillance cameras from different angles show bottles being thrown.
Seconds later, Thomas ran to the front door. He tried to close it, but he couldn’t hold back the crowd.
Some of them grabbed drinks, chips, and other items and began pushing their way out. Thomas said he tried to stop some people from stealing.
“In the process of them walking out, tried to stop a student with a lot of things in his hands and when I tried to do that, he shoved me out into the parking lot and swung at me,” Thomas said.
Thomas then says several men then pulled him to the ground and started kicking and punching him.
“I was terrified,” he said. “At first, I thought I would be able to get back into the store, and once they got me on the ground, I thought they were going to kill me.”
