A man was caught on video ransacking a downtown 7-Eleven store and terrorizing the clerk.

"He's about 6'2" and he just looks out of his mind," Luke Bodley said. "He's just traipsing through the aisles. Just throwing stuff, he's taking bags of chips and throwing them up in the air." 

Bodley started recording the encounter on his cell phone after the man started opening bag after bag of chips. He got ready in case things got violent and grabbed a scalding cup of 7-Eleven coffee.

"I felt like he was going to do something crazy," Bodley said. "That's why I grabbed a cup of coffee. [It's] the only weapon, was the only thing I could think of where if he did something, take him down."

Bodley chased the man out of the store, and police arrived a few minutes later to take a report.

"The clerk was visibly shaken, I was visibly shaken," Bodley said. "You know we hugged it out, said take care of yourself, talk to you later, had a small moment."

Bodley thought that was the end of it, but he spotted the man again a week later while he was jogging in the area.

"I couldn't believe it," he said.

Bodley called police and they arrested 33-year-old Dumaka Hill on a bench warrant, drug paraphernalia, lying to a police officer. Police are still investigating the incident at 7-Eleven.

"For me, it's about the 7-Eleven people because they got a rough job. They put up with a lot of crap," Bodley said. "I didn't want that guy coming back there or any other 7-Eleven, so had to do something."
