Dépanneur clerks aren’t easy prey for robbers. Well, at least one Longueuil dep worker isn’t.
Last night, Longueuil Police took a dépanneur clerk into custody after allegedly stabbing a robber. That’s after the dep clerk chased after and took down the thief, reports CJAD.
The robbery occurred at about 9pm last night at a dépanneur in Longueuil ’s Greenfield Park borough.
After the robber fled the dep, the store clerk exited the shop (with a knife in-hand) and went after the thief. A chase ensued.
During the course of the chase, the dep worker allegedly injured a civilian who got caught in the middle of the altercation. The civilian passerby received a cut to the face, reports The Gazette.
Despite being injured, the civilian passerby has not filed a complaint against the dep clerk.
Recent reports are saying that the robber/suspect is currently being treated at the hospital, but for reasons unrelated to the case. The dep clerk is to be questioned by police today and could face assault charges.
