MENIFEE, Calif. - A dramatic robbery at a Riverside County gas station was captured on surveillance video and has prompted a search for two suspects.

The incident happened about midnight Tuesday at an AM/PM in the 27000 block of Highway 74, authorities said.

The footage shows the robbers, one armed with a bat, wearing masks as they burst into the station's convenience store.

Two apparent employees raise their hands in the air as the perpetrators empty a cash register. The robbers then rip another machine from the counter before fleeing on foot.
