Just after he walked out to a red pickup truck at a gas pump, another man — who police later identified as Jose Alejandro Romero, 17 — walked into the store with a caulk gun partially visible under a white t-shirt, the affidavit said.
The man pointed the caulk gun at Limuel and demanded money, the affidavit said.
Limuel told police he thought it was a joke when he saw the caulk gun, but the assailant continued to demand money, the affidavit said.
The man struck Limuel with the caulk gun after he could not open the cash drawer, the affidavit said, then Limuel struck back, hitting the man with a plastic trash can.
Romero then fled the scene with a transgendered prostitute who was driving the getaway vehicle.
