This week started out like any other for Jordan Pence.

A Midtown Sacramento man was getting ready to go to work Monday morning and stopped at the convenience store near his home where he buys a cup of coffee every day.

However, he soon realized that his daily coffee stop was anything but ordinary.

“The homeless guy, I guess, decided he wanted to hold up the store,” Pence explained. “He was kind of behind the counter, I’m told, stuffing things into his bag.”

According to Pence, the man became angry and confrontational at the store.

“He just decided he wanted to have a field day with me,” Pensa said. “So he took his shirt off and bent over a couple of times.”

Everything unfolded quickly, and a fight began.

According to Pence, the store staff had some personal safety items on hand that they threw at him during the fight.

“I was able to pour a whole can of pepper spray in the guy’s face,” Pensa said.

They also had a taser, which Pensa tried to use to subdue the man.

“I turned on the stun gun, and when the guy tried to dip me, pick me up and throw me to the ground, I poked him in the kidney. Leave it alone,” Pence explained. “He didn’t stop. He tried to come up and bite me on the leg.”

At some point, the fight spilled over into the street in front of the store. Pensa had broken free – going back inside, he thought, to safety.

But he said the man came back for him.

“He wrapped the strap around his arm about two feet from the end, about two or three feet, and we were standing near the cash register,” Pensa said. “He just hit me in the head as hard as he could.”

As a result of the incident, Pence suffered head injuries.

“I ended up in the emergency room, had two CT scans,” he said. “I thought I had a broken jaw, but they ended up telling me it was just really deep swelling.”

Sacramento police said the man who attacked Pence fled after the fight. They said they found Eloghosa Adolor near 30th Street and Fat Alley and arrested him on assault charges.

KCRA 3 requested a copy of the surveillance video from inside the store during the altercation, but police are not releasing it yet as it is part of an ongoing investigation.

The incident is not the first reported violent encounter involving homeless people in East Sacramento and the Midtown area.

In February, mom was putting the children in the car near McKinley Park, the suspect, who was later arrested for assault, was pushed into a car and punched 10 times, according to witnesses.

And in June A violent confrontation, which witnesses said took place between two homeless people and stopped traffic, was caught on camera at 30th and J.

“It’s getting out of hand,” Pensa said. “This is something we must not put up with.”

In a statement to KCRA 3 regarding citizens intervening or reporting potential crimes, police said:

“The Sacramento Police Department encourages anyone who witnesses criminal activity to be a good witness. This includes, but is not limited to: obtaining a detailed physical description of any suspect(s), vehicle make/model or license plate number, specific location or direction of traffic, and a clear and concise description of the criminal activity.

“Criminal or suspicious activity can be reported to our non-emergency dispatch at 916-808-5471. In case of an emergency, call 911.”

However, after seeing similar situations in his own neighborhood, and now experiencing something similar firsthand, Pence has rethought how he will go about trying to stay safe.

“I’ll get my stash bag. Take everything into your own hands,” Pensa said. “I mean what we are forced to do.”
