NEW INFO: Clerk Hit In Head With Hammer During Robbery

A store clerk was hit on the side of the head with a hammer during a robbery this morning.

Onslow County deputies say it happened at the Circle K on Gum Branch Road outside of Jacksonville around 2:30 a.m.

Deputies say a man with a hood over his head came into the store and the clerk at first resisted the robbery.

As the clerk started to overpower the robber, deputies say the man then got out a framing hammer and hit the clerk on the head. The robber ran from the store and the clerk was taken to the hospital for treatment. Deputies say the clerk was treated and released from Onslow Memorial.

So far no one has been arrested.
