Man arrested for third degree assault following 7-Eleven attack

1:14 a.m. Sunday, March 10, 7-Eleven, 6700 block of Wadsworth Boulevard

A man was arrested for third-degree assault and criminal mischief after he attacked a 7-Eleven clerk.

Before the incident, an intoxicated woman was trying to buy cigarettes from the clerk, but did not have her ID with her. The clerk initially refused to sell them to her, but eventually sold them to her because he knew she was older than 18.

The woman then left with a man in a dark red Chevrolet SUV. Later, the same SUV backed into a handicapped spot and a man entered the store.

The man reportedly said ”You’re the one” to the clerk before punching him in the face, placing him in a chokehold and hitting him numerous times in the face and ribs. While in a chokehold, the clerk was able to hit the panic alarm behind the counter and the man left.

In addition to the clerk’s injuries, there was also about $20 worth of damage done to products and the store.

The clerk told police he could tell both the woman and man were intoxicated.

Officers went to the address the vehicle was listed to in the 6800 block of Marshall Street.

The man was placed under arrest at 1:38 a.m. for third-degree assault and criminal mischief and transported to Arvada Police headquarters at 3:10 a.m.

He was later transported to Jefferson County Jail.
