A Spokane Valley convenience store clerk suffered minor injuries last Friday night when he tried to stop a robbery.
Five teenagers - three boys and two girls - went into the Circle 7 store at 3400 S. Dishman-Mica Road at about 10 p.m. One of the boys brought an item to the counter to pay for it, while one of the girls pocketed merchandise and left the store, Sheriff’s Department spokeman Lt. Dave Wiyrick said.
When the clerk tried to go after the girl, the boys pulled him over the counter.
While the clerk struggled with the boys, another employee emerged from the back room. The teenagers were startled and left.
The clerk at the counter suffered minor injuries to his elbow and knees.

Fight sends woman to hospital
A fight between two women last Saturday left one of them in the hospital.
Police responded to a fight at 5200 E. Fourth and found the Valley woman bleeding from the head, face and arm.
She told police that she had been punched in the head three times. She said the other woman was wearing rings which caused the cuts.
The victim went back to her Valley home and the other woman later showed up to apologize, Wiyrick said.
Instead, the fight continued. The Valley woman was struck three more times with a beer bottle, she said.
