A store clerk was hit with a baseball bat Tuesday morning after the clerk told a customer the store did not carry the size of tank top shirts he wanted, police said.
The attack happened sometime between 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. in the 5500 block of West Belmont Avenue on the city's Northwest Side, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Daniel O’Brien.
The offender asked the 51-year-old store clerk if the store carried tank tops in the size triple extra large, O’Brien said.
When the store clerk said no, the man began beating the clerk with a baseball bat, police said.
The man was treated for lacerations to the head at Our Lady of the Resurrection Medical Center and later released, police said.
