After taking the money, the culprit ran from the store with the victim following him.
The monk caught his attacker when a struggle ensued. During the struggle, the monk was pushed to the ground and suffered a cut to his left leg, officials said.
Police are still searching for the robber who drove off in a dark Ford mustang.
