Colorado police are hunting for a man who brutally punched a female convenience store worker after she demanded an extra 41 cents for his cigar.
The victim, Yadira Lara, has been left with permanent eye damage, NBC 4 News reports.
Security footage shows the six-foot tall, 100-kilogram man wearing a blue shirt, arrive at the counter of the ‘Extra Mile’ store in Lakewood, Colarado, and place a $1 bill on the counter.
“And I told him, I was like, you’re missing the 41 cents,” Ms Lara told NBC 4 news.
“He said, ‘This is all I have’.”
“Everything happened so fast – I didn’t think he was going to hit me.”
The subsequent right jab sent Ms Lara sailing back and re-damaged a childhood eye injury that “can’t be fixed” and is “something that I just have to deal with.”
“I hope they capture this guy,” she said.
