Men use stun gun on clerk during store robbery

Two men used a stun gun on a clerk late Wednesday night when they robbed the Handi Cupboard in Woodleaf.
The clerk still managed to shoot at the fleeing suspects, according to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office.

According to Sheriff’s Office reports, the clerk said two black men, both around 6 feet tall, came into the store at 175 N.C. 801 while he was cashing out the register for the night about 11:30 p.m.

One suspect weighed about 300 pounds and the other about 170 pounds.

The smaller man was carrying the stun gun and wearing a black shirt and black pants.

The other man was carrying a handgun. The only available clothing description was a white shirt.

The suspects told the clerk to get on the floor. The robber with the stun gun used it on the clerk while the other man went around the counter to get the money from the register.

When the two men left the store, the clerk still managed to follow them, firing a 9 mm gun. The suspects drove away in a silver-colored car toward Woodleaf.

Investigators found five spent rounds from the clerk’s gun. The Post does not generally identify victims of armed robbery if suspects have not been arrested.
