(KMOV) – A female cashier was beat over the head with a weapon in an Olivette store Wednesday night during an attempted robbery, police say.
Officials say a suspect went into the store in the 9400 block of Olive and acted as if he were going to make a purchase.
At the cash register, he displayed a gun, and as the woman tried to close the terminal, he reportedly beat the woman over the head with the gun.
The woman was taken to a hospital where she is being treated for her injuries.
The suspect is described as a black male in his late 20s early 30s, with a muscular build, and a shaved head. He was wearing a light colored, tank-top style shirt and blue jeans.
