By master · March 8th, 2012 · No Comments

Two men walked into Video Isle (4459 Fremont Ave N.) at around 7:45 p.m. on Feb. 27 with what seemed to be very obvious concerns. What movie should they rent? One of the men distracted the clerk by asking for such recommendations while the other disappeared to the employees-only area where he left holding a tin box containing $400 to $500.

When the clerk confronted the man, the man shoved the clerk to the ground and said, “Don’t touch me, boy,” according to the report. The man then ran out of the store.

According to the store owner, this isn’t an isolated incident. After reviewing security footage, he was able to ascertain that these were suspects who had done the same thing before.

No word on the suspects or any arrests as of yet.
