Surveillance video at a north side Indianapolis convenience store captured a terrifying ordeal, as two men robbed a clerk at gunpoint, holding a gun to his head.
Two men entered the Hoosier Pete store on 46th Street just after 10 p.m. Monday as clerk Tersam Singh was sweeping up.
The men took cash and cigarettes--mostly Newports--from the store. They did not hurt Singh, who kept his hands up the entire time. Singh told Fox59 that he didn't know what else to do, so he cooperated.
Storeowner Vic Singh watched the surveillance video for the first time Tuesday. Singh said he was glad that his clerk was okay, but hoped to enlist the help of the community in helping find the suspects.
"You work hard ... Monday to Sunday, every day. It's a shame," Singh said.
Singh also warned others to keep an eye out and be careful. He believed the men had planned the robbery since they used a trash lid to prop open the front door, knowing that it had a lock that could be activated behind the counter.
"The local people should be aware of this and they should be careful," Singh said.
Singh asked that anyone who could help solve the case call police immediately. The suspects are described only as black males, wearing ski masks and dark hooded sweatshirts. Singh believed they had more than one person outside the store keeping watch.
