A cashier was airlifted to the hospital after she was stabbed by a man at the Sun Mart Convenience Store on E. Rancier Avenue in Killeen around 7:24 a.m. Thursday, according to Killeen Police Spokesperson Ofelia Miramontez.
A man entered the store and walked toward the coolers, eventually approaching the counter with a beverage before walking away, Miramontez said. The store clerk ultimately approached the man, who then stabbed her, according to Miramontez. A second employee, who was in a back room of the store, heard the commotion and ran out onto the store floor -- causing the suspect to flee, according to police.
The suspect was described as a black man with a slender build, standing roughly 5-foot-8 or 5-foot-9. He was last seen wearing a red polo shirt and blue jeans, Miramontez said. The man was filmed by surveillance cameras, and police hope someone identifies him from the footage.
