Father and son stab clerk, hit him with 18-pack of beer, police say

A father and son stabbed a Hesperia store clerk and then hit him with an 18-pack of beer when their credit card was declined, sheriff's officials said.

Mario Naranjo, 44, and Miguel Naranjo, 22, walked into the Q Mart on Main Street at 10:23 p.m. Wednesday and tried to buy beer several times but their credit card was denied, according to The Sun in San Bernardino.

They felt disrespected, so when they entered the store a fourth time, one of the men walked around the counter and stabbed the clerk with a seven-inch folding knife, said officials with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

The other man struck the clerk with an 18-pack of beer. Witnesses saw them run out with the beer and called authorities.

The clerk suffered stab wounds to his neck and stomach but his wounds were not life-threatening.

The suspects were caught and booked into jail in lieu of $1-million bail.
