Store clerk robbed outside ETX liquor store

GLADEWATER, TX (KLTV) –A man was robbed outside an East Texas liquor store Tuesday evening.

It happened just after 9:00 pm at Lambert's, which is on Highway 271, just outside the Gladewater city limits.

Gladewater police tell us this morning that the clerk at Lambert's had closed the store last night, and was headed to his car, when he was approached by two armed men.

They assaulted him, took his wallet, his cell phone, and an i-pod, and left in a vehicle.
Police say the clerk was injured, but he did not want to go to the hospital.

Gladewater police say that the men were wearing dark clothing, ski masks, and gloves, and they're believed to have left the scene in a dark Oldsmobile. Police are still reviewing evidence to confirm that.
