EL PASO - Police say two men pulled a knife on a West El Paso Walmart employee, turning their crime of theft into aggravated robbery. Now police want them caught and held responsible for their crime.
The men were caught on store surveillance video when the robbery happened about two weeks ago.
Police say the men looked like they were just buying beer, but a store employee saw them pocket an iPod or cell phone charger.
"As they walked outside, they were confronted by a loss prevention employee. During the confrontation, one of the men pulled out a knife," El Paso Police Spokesman Javier Sambrano said.
The store employee backed off, and police say the two men took off in a white truck with New Mexico plates CF8-661. They were both Hispanic men in their 20's. Police described one man as heavy set with stitches on his nose. The other, we're told, had tattoos, including three dots near his eye.
If you know who they are call, Crime Stoppers at 566-TIPS.
