PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia police are investigating a brawl at a convenience store where witnesses say some customers were trying to beat up a clerk.

Police Lt. John Stanford says police are trying to investigate the customers - who they believe are all family members - involved in the fight at the Wawa in northeast Philadelphia on Friday night.

Witnesses say the customers wanted to attack the clerk, but they were stopped by another customer who intervened, then wound up attacking that man. Police say the customers also vandalized the store when they couldn’t get to the clerk.

The customer who intervened, Shawn Nichol, tells WPVI-TV that the customers were “trying to jump one of the cashiers” and “started trashing the store when they couldn’t get to her.”
