Police Seek Help in Identifying Teen Robbers Who Looted Gas Station and Brutally Beat Clerk in Seattle Suburb Normandy Park (Video)

Store surveillance video released over the weekend shows a clerk at the Friendly Normandy Market gas station in the Seattle suburb of Normandy Park being brutally beaten by a teenage thug during a gang robbery last Friday night. The thug pummeled the clerk into submission while his accomplices robbed the store. Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the at least six suspects who arrived at the station in two stolen cars, a Kia and Hyundai which were later recovered by police.

Video of the attack was posted by KCPQ-TV reporter David Rose, “A store clerk was viciously beaten while a group of teens robbed her store in Normandy Park. @CrimeStopPuget is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for info on the suspects.

“Here is the best look at the robbery suspects in Friday night’s attack in Normandy Park. Call 1-800-222-TIPS or go to http://P3Tips.com if you know any of their names. It is anonymous.”

In an interview with KCPQ, the clerk said the robbers were laughing during the attack:

KIRO-TV reported the clerk said the robbers did not get away with much (excerpt):

“But before I could even take in what they said to me or respond, the one was on top of me just hitting me,” Leah Johnston, the woman attacked, said.

Johnston says she was trying to tell the group they could take whatever they wanted and to stop hitting her.

“I know at one point (I said) that you could stop hitting me. I’m not fighting you!” Johnston said.

She says all the guys took from the store was less than $100, some tobacco products, and candy.
