Hunt is on for 2 suspects in Yonkers store robbery

Police are searching for two suspects who they say beat up two Yonkers convenience store clerks during a robbery last month.

The thieves were caught on surveillance tape, which shows one of them spraying mace in the face of one of the clerks and then punching him, police say.

In the video, another clerk could be seen trying to grab the robber's leg, and also getting hit. That's when the second suspect came in and tackled one of the clerks.

Authorities say the robbers made off with cash and cigarettes. Police believe the suspect wearing a do-rag may have been involved in another heist.

To watch extended surveillance video footage, go to iO Extra on Channel 612.
