SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio Police Department is looking for the community's help in identifying a group of teenagers who robbed a 7/11 on the near-north side at 3 a.m. on October 1.
SAPD posted the dramatic video surveillance footage on Thursday afternoon and, 24 hours later, the video had gone viral with more than half a million views.
SAPD says that they have one of the most popular law enforcement Facebook pages in the country and wanted to use their reach to solicit tips from the public that could lead to arrests.
Police say that one of the teens in the group had a gun. Another hit a store clerk with what police think is a box of beer cans. Yet another tried to hit the clerk across the head with a bottle.
"The clerk was injured and had some visible injuries on his face. It was my understanding that he didn't have to be transported to the hospital," said Officer Doug Greene, an SAPD spokesperson.
Police say that the teens stole chips, drinks and beer from the store and, once found, will likely be charged with aggravated robbery because of the use of force. Police say that since posting the video, they have several tips.
If you have any information about the suspects you can call Crime Stoppers at 210-224-STOP.
