ARLINGTON (CBSDFW) - A longtime Arlington pharmacist is recovering after he was beaten with a tire iron during a robbery on Saturday.

Rick Ray says the robber, wearing a black Halloween mask, came into Arlington Pharmacy North near I-30 and Cooper Saturday afternoon and demanded all the pain medication.

“We walked back towards the back, and I reached in the safe. That’s when he started hitting me and knocked me down,” said Ray, who quickly grabbed his pistol and fired at the suspect. “I guess I got up and got a shot off. He hit me another couple of times and then he left.”

Authorities believe the suspect was wounded by Ray.

Despite a face full of cuts and bruises from the tire iron, Ray says he did not suffer permanent damage in the attack.
