Man arrested after stabbing store clerk in Lawrenceburg robbery

A man has been arrested and charged after stabbing and robbing a gas station in Lawrenceburg. This happened on August 11 at the VP gas station on Arch Street when officers responded to a report of stabbing and theft. When officers arrived, they found the victim, a store clerk, standing in the store with blood coming from his left arm as well as his face. Police said there was blood all over the store and in the parking lot. The clerk told them that a man walked into the station and grabbed him by the hair, stabbed him in the arm, then took money from the cash register and ran away. After reviewing the CCTV, Lawrenceburg Police Detectives Shepherd and Beetz along with other officers began work on the case. They released the footage and a resident came forward saying he believed he knew the suspect. He told them the man, later identified as Clinton Hulsey, 44, was homeless but worked in the northern Kentucky area and had recently purchased a black Jeep Cherokee. Detectives attended Hulsey’s workplace in northern Kentucky on August 11 where they found the Jeep matching the description and learned that the recording had returned to Hulsey. They spoke with Hulsey’s manager who told them Hulsey had a cut on his right index finger and bicep which he had not seen the day before. Officers located Husley, who told them he had smoked methamphetamine and could not remember anything after work. When detectives showed Hulsey surveillance photos of VP, Hulsey admitted that he was the person in the photos and that he was wrong. Hulsey was subsequently arrested and charged with robbery causing grievous bodily harm, grievous bodily harm and criminal mischief. The bond was set at $ 500,000.
