Crime Stoppers: Man Beaten, Hog Tied & Robbed

Posted: Updated:

(EAST BRAINERD) WRCB - A store clerk shares details of the terrifying night.

Abid Kahn says he was beaten, tied by the ankles and quite frankly scared to death.  He also says because of the brutality, and the fact that he was robbed on September 11th.  He believes it's a hate crime.

Khan says, "He said if you move I'm gonna kill you that was very scary for me."

Khan says he's been a clerk at this East Brainerd Food Mart for about a year, but he's never had a night like he did Saturday.

He adds, "He hit me, he hit me so bad when I was going to my car."

Khan closed up shop around 11 that night.  He was walking to his car when he was attacked, beaten, then hog tied.  The suspect told him to stay behind the store.

Khan adds, "He took my wallet and cell phone and 40 dollars in cash and credit cards."

The suspect left the scene on foot, heading north on Lee Highway.  Surveillance video isn't very clear, but investigators are hoping someone will recognize him or pick up on some detail that may give away his identity.

Detectives say at this time they have not classified the robbery as a hate crime, but if you saw anything that night, or can help police after seeing the video, call Crime Stoppers at 698-3333.

It's confidential, and you could get a cash reward.
