A clerk fought back against a man armed with a butter knife in a bizarre attack inside a Midtown gas station.
It happened at the Shell gas station off Northside Drive and 14th Street early Monday morning.
Police said he slipped through the hole in a bulletproof window.
“He came in immediately and started screaming and shouting and jumped. He was very scary,” Berhan Nemaneta said.
Both Nemaneta and his co-worker ran out of the store and locked the man inside until police could arrive.
The other clerk received had some minor cuts to his head but is going to be OK.
Police have not identified the man and are working to figure out a motive behind the attack. The owner may release video of the attack later today.
