7-11 store clerk in Loop stabbed while stopping a thief
A clerk at a Loop convenience store is nursing a stab wound after stopping a thief.
It happened Wednesday morning at the 7-11 near Michigan and Randolph.
The clerk, named Zubair, says he saw a man trying to steal some gloves; so he chased the thief, grabbed the gloves and took them back.
But the man pulled out a small knife and cut the clerk in the head.
It took a while for the clerk to realize he’d been stabbed; he finished his work shift by pressing a paper towel over the wound to stop the bleeding.
He says he’ll just get it stitched up.
