Lost in apathy

I got off work at about 1 or 2am, since I work at a hollywood video and we close at 12, plus closing tasks. I go to the Sunoco that is right next door to fill up, and go to the window at the booth to slide my money under the compartment, but the guy waves me to the door. He comes over and unlocks the door, then goes behind the counter to ring me up. I pay, and go to leave. He comes around the counter back towards me which confuses me, then hands me a pack of $0.30 cent gum saying something like, "you can have this". He then gets really close to me, brushes my hair back, grabs my face, and pulls me towards his face. I panic, freeze up, pull back, twitch a little, and get my ass out of there, never to return. That was probably 5 months ago.

As some of you will mention, I did try to take up complaints, I asked my store manager policies about getting employees fired and sexual harassment, and she calls saying that she's my mother and demands to know who was working that night. She asks if there are cameras over there, and says that one of their employees was sexually harassing me. I send a coworker over there (male, in broad daylight) and he lookes around for cameras and sees none. I went to other sunocos and told them I had a problem at another store and asked if cameras were required, which they only are for corperate stores, and this one is a franchise and was expecting cameras to be installed but didn't have them yet. Eventually, I really didn't want to deal with all that, I had no proof, and I just let it drop. Not the smartest course of action, but I really didn't want to have to be drudged through all sorts of crap because of it.
