An enraged customer punched a female store clerk in the face after becoming belligerent over only 41 cents.

The customer was trying to pay for a $1.41 cigar at a Lakewood, CA., Conoco gas station earlier this month with just a $1 bill when he became enraged after being told he needed the other 41 cents, causing him to bash the 23-year-old clerk in her face.

Police still have yet to find the suspect and are asking for the public’s help identifying him.


Identified by KCBS under the pseudonym ‘Yadira,’ the helpless young woman fought back tears as she told of the incident.

‘There’s cowards out there willing to do stupid stuff,’ the emotional girl told the station.
Explaining that he tried to short-change her by 41 cents while buying a Swisher Sweets cigar, Yadira told KCBS that he said ‘ this is all I have… b***h whatever.’

Yadira then asked the man to leave the store and he tried to snatch it from her.


She never saw it coming: 'I didn't think he was going to hit me' the store clerk said

‘It just happened so fast… I didn’t think he was going to hit me,’ Yadira said, adding [then] he just socks me.’

Security footage of the incident shows the suspect trying to grab the cigar from the young clerk before leaning forward, then winding up and smashing her in the face.

Perhaps shocked by what they had just seen, customers in line behind the violent man stood still as he angrily stormed out of the Conoco.

‘It’s a brutal attack on an innocent victim,’ a police spokesperson told the station.

The punch threw her glasses off her face and injured her eye, but she was otherwise okay. She finished her shift that night, but told KCBS she is afraid when she goes to work.

‘Really? Over 41 cents? Imagine if he got like that, imagine what else would have happened?’

    Another Black P O S punching a woman. If you want a cigar, you pay full price. Nothing but a food stamp ghetto thug.

    I see you never committed on the large man hitting the girl in the face . That must be o k on your planet. You turn this around to attack Palin and Limbaugh . [ I don’t care for them either]. That don’t give that man a free pass, no matter what you think. You are as big of a racist as the people you are attacking. 80% of the crime in this country is committed by 20% of the population.We marched for equality——what happened to that idea after 50+ years.

    This is a situation that reflects a decline in the value system within America. Injuring a sales clerk at a convenience center over a $.41 shorfall over a purchase makes no sense. The fact that the victim is white and female is secondary as well as the assailant being black. She did not deserve this kind of treatment as she was merely doing her job. The man is guilty of assault and needs to go to jail. He needs to be held accountable for what he did and pay for any medical costs of her treatment.

    LoL… if that were a white male customer and she was a black female clerk this story would be on CNN, ABC, MSNBC, and every local station in the country. Oprah would have a charity fund going for the victim and Obama would be encouraging the nation to step up and help law enforcement find this criminal.

      Ridiculous assumption. The media outlets pick and choose what they want to display. For them it’s, “If it sparks instant outrage, or at least gets people watching, we have a winner.” The color of the parties involved may be used to fan the flames, obviously. That doesn’t mean there is favor for any one group. Oprah and Obama might respond if it gets enough press, but generally they don’t seem to care one way or another.

    The blacks are a CANCER in our midst – and what this country truly needs is a new Adolf Hitler – one who (unlike the last one) will choose the PROPER targets this time! At the very least, we have plenty of trees, plenty of ropes and plenty of gasoline to give this race of savages EXACTLY what they have long deserved.

      So basically you’re saying that all the white on black violence that happened less than 60 years ago and even recently also makes white people a cancer that needs to be eradicated? Sorry, but the only cancer here is people like you continually spreading hate and violence. This guy was stupid, no doubt, and I think he should be dealt with for his actions. But to blame us in black people in general (yes, I’m black and here to stay, get over it) makes you no better than him. The point is that every HUMAN BEING that does wrong will be dealt with by God (you’re on a Christian website, remember?). There’s no color-coding that. What do you have to say about the infant murdering grandmother and that infant raping daycare worker, hmm?

    Well, I see the racists and the haters are here in force today spewing the venom they have been commanded to repeat by Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. Those of us not blinded by racial hatred will understand the young man was merely acting out a symbolic reparation in solidarity with all oppressed peoples of the planet.

    Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh have, for years, incited violence against minority communities; now hear how The Pig squeals when confronted with its own notions of White Privilege.

    The race haters and the white fascists posting here need to go back to masturbating on their guns, Bibles and AM radios and leave the rest of us alone!

      So you’re saying its perfectly OK for a man to beat on a woman irrespective of race? I hope your most loved relative gets cancer and dies a slow, miserable, painful death.
