PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia police have released surveillance video that shows one of two robbery suspects dragging a clerk across the floor during a convenience store robbery.

Police are still trying to find the men who robbed the 7-Eleven store on Rising Sun Avenue about 12:50 a.m. Monday.

They knocked the 29-year-old clerk to the ground then forced him to open the cash registers after one of the suspects dragged him through the store.

The man spoke to WTXF-TV and says he’s too afraid to show his face. He says the robbers told him if he did anything, “It’s the rest of your life.”

Police say one suspect had a knife and the other had a gun.

Police are trying to determine if they’re the same men who robbed two other businesses.
