Lawrence McCray, 35, allegedly rushed a female clerk at the Exxon gas station at 1324 Barrow Road around 3:30 Wednesday morning. The clerk told police she was cleaning the lobby when McCray forced her into the office and hit her twice in the head with a black semi-automatic pistol.

He also allegedly tried to force her to perform oral sex before stealing some items from the store and running away.

The clerk said she recognized him because he had been a customer at the store numerous times before.

McCray is charged with aggravated robbery, felony theft of property and attempted rape.
