The first suspect struck an employee on the right side of his head taking $200 from him, while a second suspect went behind the counter. When an employee came up from the basement, the first suspect grabbed her demanding her to empty the cash register and place the money inside a bag. After complying with the suspects’ demands, both suspects fled out the front of the store and were last seen heading toward Hunting Park Avenue. A witness followed the suspects who were running on foot toward Hunting Park Avenue to O Street where both suspects then fled in an alley and the witness lost sight of them.
