ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A man who slashed a clerk at a Glen Burnie gas station during a robbery attempt has been sentenced to 18 months in jail.

Joseph Earl Schrump, 22, of Glen Burnie pleaded guilty in January to first-degree assault. He was sentenced last week.

Police say Schrump walked into the Mobile gas station food mart and demanded money from the clerk, who resisted. The two struggled, and Schrump cut the clerk several times.

The Capital of Annapolis reports that the clerk needed eight staples to close the wounds on his head.
