Officers say a man entered a 7-Eleven store in the 300 block of North Marsalis Avenue at about 1:05 a.m. on July 28. (On Thursday afternoon, Dallas police released surveillance video of the man.)

When the clerk attempted to shut the cash drawer, officers say the man bit her on the arm, then punched her in the face.

The man is described as black, 25 to 35 years of age. He's 6-feet, one-inch tall and weighs 250 pounds. He was wearing a red T-shirt, black shorts and red Nike tennis shoes.
