SAN ANTONIO, Texas (KXAN) — The San Antonio Police Department is seeking the public’s help identifying a group of people who came in and robbed a 7-11 store last month.

Surveillance video from the store shows numerous young individuals standing around the entry and within a few seconds, the store is swarmed with people grabbing beer and snacks. During the brazen Oct. 1 robbery, one of the suspects looks directly at the surveillance camera and points a handgun at it.

As the employee tries to stop some of the suspects at the door, one of the people seen in the video smashes what appears to be a wine bottle over the clerk’s head.

Within a few minutes, the store clears out leaving behind a messy trail of beer cans.

Police say all persons captured in the video are suspects. If you recognize any of the suspects, you are urged to call the San Antonio Crime Stoppers at 210-224-STOP (7867).

A similar incident happened in Seguin back in April. Police in that town called their robbery an “organized” theft.
