Dallas store clerk attacked by group of young people

NEWS 8 EXCLUSIVE

DALLAS — 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."

Thomas suffered cuts on his nose, eyes and lip. He still has a bruised rib and bicep. He told us his injuries would have been worse if two girls hadn't stepped in.

"I'm very grateful for that," said Thomas. "If it wasn't for them, I could have lost my life."

Thomas and his family met with Dallas police Wednesday afternoon. Officers are now investigating the incident as an aggravated robbery assault. Thomas hopes this video motivates witnesses to come forward.

"If you all have any idea who did this, please put their names out there, 'cause if they don't get caught, they are going to do it again," Thomas said.

If you have any information on this case, call the Dallas Police Department.

Was he unarmed because he was underage? In Texas I would figure it wouldn't be too difficult to procure a handgun, especially to defend one's place of business.

oh they're 'students' now

So we've gone from 'unruly youths' to 'young people' and now to 'students'

I guess in a few months the media will be calling them 'infants'

Big companies like Exxon usually don't let their employees carry firearms on the job unless they are in some type of security position

South Polk Street and Interstate 20 in Dallas.
There's yer problem right there.

Everything from about I-30 and below is dogshit. If you're ever attempting to navigate Dallas and you find yourself south of 30 you need to find your way back to where you're going. If you find yourself around I-20, don't get out of your car.

It's amazing how fast our language is evolving when it comes to savages taking shit that doesn't belong to them.

Does that video actually properly identify the suspects and victim?

Somebody pinch me.

Sheer brilliance.

Shocking. Who could have predicted that?

I know the general feeling on here is to open fire on these savages, but can you imagine the lawsuits. A sheboon on the morning news holding up a picture of her little LaShaune and crying that he was killed over a bag of chips and some red drink. The of course Rev Al shows up for the funeral and demands social justice and you know the rest...

You could get yourself a job as a clerk at a store in a predominately young person neighborhood

You could be the Rosa Parks of the new movement
