Richland Hills police appealed for help to find two robbers accused of stealing a burrito and then beating up a convenience store clerk.

The 35-year-old clerk confronted the suspects on Tuesday night outside of the Stop & Get One at 6940 Baker Blvd., Richland Hills police said in a news release.

Another employee called 911 after the robbers beat up the store clerk and fled the scene. The victim was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Richland Hills patrol officers responded to the robbery call about 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Employees reported two men, both believed under 21, walked into the store and began loitering where the beer is located. The victim repeatedly told them to stay away from the beer and then ordered them to leave.

They got into an argument with the clerk inside of the store, Richland Hills police said.

At some point, the men exited the store, but one of them took a burrito from a store counter, Richland Hills police said.

An employee followed them outside, where he was beaten, Richland Hills police said.

Employees described the suspects as white; one is about 5-foot-9 and thin, the other is taller with a heavy build bowl-style haircut.

Anyone with information about the robbery, should call Richland Hills police at 817-616-3789.
