Distressing video shows teen pummel cashier as gang of kids swipe candy, vapes

A Washington State gas station cashier was pummeled relentlessly by a teen while four other youths raided shelves for candy, vapes, cigarettes and just a handful of cash, police said.

Harrowing footage from inside the Friendly Normandy Market, in Normandy Park, captured the moment a teen in a black hoodie began swinging wildly at cashier Leah Johnston — in order to buy time for his accomplices to rob the gas station Friday night.

The boy delivered blow after blow to Johnston, who tried yelling at him to stop as she covered her face and fell to the ground.

“At one point I told him, ‘You can stop hitting me. I’m not fighting you,’” Johnston told Fox 13. “It didn’t slow him down.

“They were laughing. They had no [regard] for anything,” she added. “They don’t care anymore.”

As Johnston suffered the severe beating, the other teens — wearing matching black hoodies and pants — pillaged the cigarette case behind the cash register.

The teens could be seen dropping most of their haul as they ran out, and they ended up taking less than $100 from the register.

Officials said a total of six suspects were involved in the assault and robbery at the gas station.

Police said the suspects were believed to be teenagers, who fled the scene in a stolen Kia and Hyundai. The cars were recovered following the incident.

Johnston said that while she’s heard about these kinds of raids, which have plagued big city retailers in recent years, she never imagined it would happen at her shop.

“I know in the back of my mind it can always happen, but I never thought that I would be attacked the way I was attacked.” Johnston said.

“I mean, my face hurts, but my pride, I think, hurts more,” she lamented.

Normandy Park Police said they have teamed up with King County Sheriff’s Department in investigating the case, with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound offering a $1,000 cash reward for information on the suspects.
