Clerk assaulted in store robbery

Posted By on Fri, Dec 14, 2012 at 9:05 AM

The clerk at a Conoco at 10200 Rodney Parham was assaulted during a robbery about 11:20 p.m. last night.

Report here.

Josh Boykin, 33, said one of two robbers hit him in the face after cleaning out a register because he said he couldn't open a safe. Boykin scuffled with one of the robbers and pulled off one of the robber's skull cap as he ran from the store. Video apparently was made of the robbery.

The Presbytery also expressed its opposition to a pending House bill that, in the name of "conscience," would protect those who discriminate against gay people.

  • The hart

    It is hard for a straight person, The Observer included, to imagine what it would be like to be born gay — to be shipwrecked here on this space-going clod, where nearly every textbook, novel, film and television show, nearly every blaring screen or billboard or magazine ad, reinforces the idea that "normal" means "heterosexual."
