OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - Police are still searching for two suspects involved in robbing a convenience store in northwest Oklahoma City last month.

On Jan. 13, two men entered Guatlinda at the 3000 block of N.W. 16 St.

The men made away with hundreds of dollars, after pistol-whipping the store clerk, according to police reports.

Thursday, police released the surveillance video in hopes it might help identify those responsible.

"There were two suspects, both of them Hispanic that came in," said Master Sgt. Gary Knight. "They were wearing masks over their faces."

One of the men served as the lookout, the second serving as muscle - both caught on surveillance cameras.

"You don't get a very good look at their face. You get a partial look at their face," Knight said. "Hopefully, somebody will recognize them."

One of the suspects threatened the woman in Spanish, telling her to "give me all your money, or I will kill you," police said.

He snooped through the restaurant, found the only two places in the store where money was not locked up, then turned back and targeted the clerk, police said.

"After the store clerk had complied with the demands for cash, she was pistol-whipped by one of the suspects," Knight said.

The woman was pistol-whipped not once but seven times in the back of the head, police said.

"Anyone with information on who these two are, we want to hear from them," Knight said.

NewsChannel 4 spoke with the victim.

Though she did not want to speak on camera, she did say she has since recovered and is back at work.
