A store clerk was attacked by a man with a baseball bat this morning after being told the store did not carry the size of tank top shirts he requested.
The attack happened between 10:30 and 11 a.m. at a convenience store on the 5500 block of West Belmont Avenue in the Cragin neighborhood.
The 51-year-old clerk was behind the counter of the store when a man went into the store and asked the clerk if he had triple extra large sized tank top t-shirts.
After the clerk told the man the store did not carry the item, the man pulled out a baseball bat and began beating the clerk. After beating the clerk, the man fled with the bat.
The clerk suffered a cut to his head and was taken to Our Lady of the Resurrection Medical Center, where he was treated and released.
The suspect is being described as black, between 23 and 30 years old, between 5 feet 8 inches tall and 6 feet tall and between 200 and 250 pounds. He has brown eyes and black hair and a dark complexion and was last seen wearing a red bandanna and white tank top shirt
