Tampa, FL - Just before 3:30 AM on Sunday morning (7/1/18), the suspect entered the Marathon gas station at the corner of Channelside and Kennedy and tried to purchase alcohol.
When informed by the clerk, 63 year old David Miller, that there are no sales of alcohol after 3:00 AM, the subject became confrontational and the two got into a verbal altercation.
Miller directed the suspect to leave the store, but he refused and continued arguing.
The suspect then got directly in Miller's face and, without provocation, punched him, knocking him to the ground.
The suspect then fled on foot and was last seen walking south on Channelside Drive.
