man arrested in sledgehammer beating of store owner

Last week in Miami, police caught the man who brutally attacked a convenience store owner with chemicals and a sledge hammer: Rodobaldo Sanchez Arrested For Attempted Murder Of Mini Mart Clerk Cen Yue Kui.

50-year-old Rodobaldo Sanchez was arrested for the attempted murder of Cen Yue Kui. He sprayed him in the eyes with some kind of chemical, then repeatedly beat him with a hammer. The attack left Kui in coma on life support. All that for two goddamn cartons of cigarettes:
Rodobaldo Sanchez, 50, was arrested Wednesday night after he was observed just a few miles from where 44-year-old Cen Yue Kui was attacked at Alex's Mini Mart on NW 12th Avenue and 5th Street. Police had been on the lookout for Sanchez after he was identified on Tuesday by a fingerprint pulled off a carton of cigarettes at the scene of the crime.

Surveillance video from the attack showed a man fitting Sanchez's description approach the store counter under the pretense of buying milk. While Kui rang up the purchase, the assailant sprayed him in the face with an unknown chemical, then beat him to the ground with what appeared to be a sledge hammer before grabbing two cartons of cigarettes and fleeing the scene.

The furious attack left Kui, a married father of two, on life support and in a coma with severe head trauma.
Sanchez, who I'm sure is a hell of a guy who just happens to be sporting a swastika tattoo on his arm, is charged with attempted first degree murder, armed occupied burglary with assault, armed robbery, and armed false imprisonment.
