SAN JACINTO, Calif. (KABC) -- Four teens were being sought after they ransacked a 7-Eleven store in San Jacinto and assaulted a clerk in a flash mob-style robbery captured on video, authorities said Tuesday.
The incident was reported shortly after 10 p.m. Monday at a convenience store in the 1200 block of North State Street, just north of Ramona Expressway, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.
Video shows the four suspects running around the store, taking alcohol and other miscellaneous items. One suspect runs behind the front counter and climbs over it.
As they left, a store clerk tried to stop one of the suspects. She was assaulted and ended up with a bloody nose but was not seriously injured.
The suspects fled in a vehicle described as a newer-model, dark-colored SUV.
The sheriff's department hopes someone will recognize the suspects from the video.
"Obviously the images we obtain from any type of video or cameras is huge," said Sgt. Dierdre Vickers with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.
"The public is going to have more knowledge of who that person might be, somebody in the neighborhood may recognize them based on whatever they were wearing, or their stature, so this type of information can be crucial in this type of investigation."
Anyone with information is asked to call the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.
