ALOHA, Ore.-- Washington County investigators are looking for a man who they said beat up and robbed a Dotty's convenience store clerk Tuesday morning.

Surveillance photos show the suspect at the store on Southwest Tualatin Valley Highway.

The clerk was locking up at the end of business when she was hit repeatedly with some sort of blunt weapon.

The attacker, wearing a surgical mask over his face, took off with stolen cash and lottery tickets.

He was later seen by a surveillance camera at a WinCo store trying to cash in the stolen lottery tickets.

If you recognize the man, call the Washington County Sheriff's office at (503) 846-2500.
