About five men wearing hoodies beat up a Sacramento Quik Stop worker after he refused to hand over money early Wednesday morning.
The robbery happened at Hurley Way and Fulton Avenues around 3 a.m.
The men demanded the worker hand over money and open a safe.
When he refused, they hit him with a butt of a gun and kicked and punched him. They were able to run off with $100 from the register.
Jazmin Fischer, the wife of a different Quik Stop worker who normally works the night shift, says there have been around four robberies at the store since her husband started working there. She hopes the store will eventually put private security guards in front.
“I just pray to God that when my husband comes back he doesn’t get robbed. It’s stressful. I lose sleep. I catch myself falling asleep at 4 o’clock in the morning. He comes home at 6-7 in the morning,” Fischer said. “I get very little sleep. We have kids. I just pray to God every night that he comes home to me.”
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies.
