A Fresno gas station clerk returned to work for the first time since being robbed and assaulted at gunpoint.

Ravinder Singh is only 23 but says he manages five different convenience or liquor stores around town. He says Saturday's robbery at a Fast & Esy on First and Gettysburg was the first time he's been robbed.

"He just jump on the counter and he told me open the register and then I opened up both registers," Singh said.

Singh says the man, believed to be Hispanic and in his 30's, recovered quickly after falling over the counter. After getting up and seeing there wasn't enough cash in the registers, he demanded Singh to open the safe. He got mad when Singh told him he couldn't do that.

"And then he trying to hit me and put the gun on my back," Singh said. So I thought he was going to shoot me so I got scared and he told me to lay down when he left. He punched me on the face a little bit more harder, and then he just left."

Singh says two customers were filling up their tanks when the robbery happened early Saturday morning.
But after seeing what was going on, they got scared and ran across the street.

Singh says he's still scared too. Thursday night is his first back at work, after spending the last few days recovering from injuries all over his upper body.

"But now I am ok cause I went to the doctor to get some medicine," Singh said. "Now I am pretty good actually."
