For one local convenience store clerk at the Malvern Town Centre, an early morning at work turned into a bit of a nightmare.

The 23-year-old worker was stabbed repeatedly in the stomach during a robbery at Mac’s convenience store around 5 a.m. on Dec. 3. Taken to hospital, he had surgery and is recovering.

“It’s going to be some time before he comes to work,” said Sean Sportun, Director of security for Mac’s stores. “But he’s doing well and we’re supporting him as a company, and he’s on the road to recovery.”

Later in the day, a suspect was identified and found near Neilson and Tapscott roads.

Michael Miller, 32, is charged with robbery, attempted murder, dangerous weapons and failure to comply with probation.

According to Sportun, the company has taken measures to provide securities for the store from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

“We’ve put in some uniform guards overnight to help them along with the tragedy that happened last week,” Sportun said.

The name of the victim has not been released.
