OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities arrested an Oklahoma City man accused of stealing beer from a convenience store and attacking a clerk.

On Sunday, officers were called to the 7-Eleven along N. Western Ave. in reference to a robbery.

Witnesses told police that a man stole a pack of beer and then punched a female clerk in the face.

According to the arrest affidavit, 57-year-old Bruce Scott grabbed a 30 pack of Bud Light from the store’s beer cooler and attempted to leave without paying.
