SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Police say a store clerk was attacked with a crowbar when he tried to stop a man from breaking into a vending machine.

KSL-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1gTrLGP ) that the man tried to break into the machine at a Love convenience store in Salt Lake City Thursday morning.

Salt Lake Police Lt. Dave Cracroft says when the clerk tried to intervene the man attacked him with a crowbar. The clerk caught the crowbar and took it away. The suspect then fled.

The clerk was not seriously injured.

Cracroft says the suspect may be the same man who has stolen more than $33,000 from vending machines in Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Nevada.
