Police say a clerk at a Shell Superstop at 10101 Interstate 30, just east of Chicot Road, was robbed and shot in the leg shortly after midnight last night. A suspect was arrested soon after.

Moses Alfaidh said he complied with an armed man's demand for money, then was shot in the right calf when he tried to flee to the store's office. A witness saw the fleeing robber's vehicle and a vehicle matching that description was stopped on Interstate 40. Two suspects were arrested. Sultan Aldawish, 24, was charged with aggravated robbery, battery, theft, theft by receiving and possession of a controlled substance (an incident report listed Xanax and a greef leafy susbstance among evidence seized). A passenger, Derrick Hooie, 37, was charged with obstruction of governmental operations and also cited under a failure to appear warrant. A police report said Aldawish was identified as a Saudi Arabian citizen.
