Security cameras were rolling when a Texas convenience store clerk was bitten during a violent robbery.
Freeport police said the robber attacked Mohammed Meah, a clerk at the Shamrock Mini Mart, before robbing the store about 6 p.m. Saturday.
"He tried to kill me," Meah said.
Video shows the man walked into the store and pretended to be a customer.
He was seen making a fake stop at the ATM.
Police said the thief made a mad dash around the counter, grabbed Meah from behind and started choking him.
Meah said the robbed roughed him up, dragged him across the floor and bit his face.
"Then I finally fell down and he said, 'OK, open the register,'" Meah said.
The robber got away with about $700 in cash, investigators said.
