A man faces assault charges after attacking a store clerk and then a police officer.

The suspect entered the 7-Eleven at Fountain and Circle in southeast Colorado Springs just after 10:30 Monday night, and allegedly jumped the counter and began assaulting the clerk.

Police say two quick-acting customers were able to pull the suspect off the clerk and hold him down until officers arrived. When police got on scene and were trying to get the suspect under control, they say he kicked one of the officers in the head as he tried to resist arrest.

The suspect, identified as Guillermo Lopez-Sanchez, has been charged with third-degree assault, as well as second-degree assault on a police officer.
