Police say a shoplift-turned-robbery happened early this morning at the South Delridge 7-11. Their preliminary summary says two females were inside the store just before 7 am when one “grabbed a pack of aluminum foil and concealed it in her pocket.” The clerk confrontd her; she “threw a couple of punches at the employee. The punches missed the employee.” At that point, because of the use of force, the situation became a robbery. The two females left the store; police were called and searched the area but didn’t find them. No further description in the report; police were attempting to obtain surveillance video.

    Too bad the clerk’s plan to stop them was foiled.

      You think this funny? A couple of punk teens, evidently no parental supervision, assaulting a retail clerk? Shame on you

        The report did not describe them as juveniles – no age indication at all. Until and unless we get more info, we don’t know whether they were teens or adults.

        Lighten up.  Its okay to laugh a little.

        Hopefully not teens. Humor aside sad story all around as I imagine the foil is intended for the use of illicit drugs…

    But, did the clerk foil the crooks’ plans?

      At the point the investigation has probably wrapped up so who knows

    Sad story. But it was news to me that 7-11 carries aluminum foil, so there is a silver lining.
