The suspect is seen trying to grab one of the clerks behind the counter, and police say he demanded money from them.
Though the security footage is partially blurred to conceal the identities of the store clerks, a man behind the counter is seen punching the suspect in the head before at least two others join in to subdue the suspect, knocking him to the ground. The man is then seen repeatedly striking the suspect before the video ends.
The suspect then fled the store, police said. Authorities are investigating the incident and asking the public for help identifying the suspect.
