A resistant clerk got punched in the face but may have reduced a robber's take in a robbery this morning at the Shell Super Stop at 4100 W. Markham (across the street from UAMS
Park Plaza). The police report:
On 01-05-12 at approximately 0647 hrs officers responded to a Robbery Alarm at the Shell Super Stop located at 4100 W Markham.
