Deputies: Robbery suspect who was stabbed is arrested (w/video)

A man who deputies say was stabbed while trying to rob a convenience store in the University of South Florida area last weekend was arrested on Tuesday.

Daniel Dwayne Eubanks, 44, of Tampa was arrested without incident at 14001 San Casa Place in Tampa, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said Eubanks is being treated for his stab injuries at Tampa General Hospital. After he is cleared medically, he will be booked into the Hillsborough County jail and charged with armed robbery, grand theft and aggravated battery.

The Sheriff's Office released surveillance video on Monday that showed a man entering the Sunoco at 14516 N 22nd St. about 5:45 a.m. Sunday and demanding a money bag. Then he scuffled with the clerk, fighting over a baseball bat and knocking over a set of shelves.

The man overpowered the clerk and took the bat, deputies said, but was then stabbed by the clerk in the abdomen. The two continued to struggle until the clerk ran outside and alerted nearby deputies. The robber took a brown paper bag full of cash from behind the counter and fled.
