A pair of suspects pepper-sprayed and beat a clerk during a robbery at a North Las Vegas store earlier this month, according to city police.
North Las Vegas Police on Tuesday released footage of the brazen crime, which was reported at about 2 p.m. Feb. 10 in the 1600 block of North Main Street, near Owens Avenue.
The male suspects entered the store, headed toward a refrigerator and asked questions about “inventory,” police said.
They then walked to the register, placed the drinks down, and a Hispanic suspect pulled out a canister and pepper-sprayed the employee, who tried to fight back. That’s when the assailant went behind the counter and beat the victim in the head, police said. All the while, a white suspect stole cigarette cartons.
Both suspects are “young” males who stand about 5 feet, 8 inches, and weigh about 150 pounds, police said. The suspect who attacked the clerk wore a black baseball cap and a gray sweatshirt and pants. The other one wore a black and purple baseball cap, a gray shirt, striped gloves, and gray pants.
