RALEIGH – A man who allegedly robbed a Raleigh gas station early Tuesday morning ended up injured after the store’s clerk fought back with a baseball bat.
It happened at the Circle K gas station in the 2500 block of South Saunders Street at 12:23.
When police arrived, they found 51-year-old William Winston lying in the parking lot of the store.
The store clerk told police Winston entered the business and demanded money while implying that he had a weapon and then left the store. That’s when the clerk reportedly went after Winston and struck him in the head with the bat, subduing him until police arrived on scene.
Winston was treated at the hospital and then released to police. He has been charged with robbery.
The clerk was not injured.
