A young man who reportedly attacked a Mapco convenience store clerk at Bethel and Navy roads in Millington, Tenn., Tuesday morning was identified and arrested hours later a Shelby County Sheriff spokesman said.
Twenty-year-old Jose Flores confessed to the crime and was charged with Criminal Attempt Aggravated Robbery and Kidnapping after he allegedly attacked the store clerk after canvassing the store between 4:30-5:30 a.m.
Flores allegedly attacked the clerk by grabbing her and successfully dragging her into the restroom, where he then attempted to criminally assault her. The victim fought Flores off and he left the store.
The victim sustained minor injuries in the assault.
Flores could face additional charges, sheriff spokesman Chip Washington said.
