The San Diego Police Department needs the public’s help in identifying three suspects, after they beat up a Point Loma gas station clerk. 

On December 29 three men and two women drove to the 7-Eleven on W. Point Loma Blvd. in a silver Toyota Camry, according to police.

The men went into the store and attempted to buy beer. They soon became angry after the clerk refused to sell them the beer, because he believed they were intoxicated. 

Police say the man wearing the Chicago Bulls beanie and the man with the blue/red Washington Nationals baseball cap walked out of the store briefly while the man with "The Hundreds" sweatshirt grabbed and attempted to steal a 12 pack of Pacifico beer. 

The other two men then re-entered the store, as the clerk confronted the the man with the beer - attempting to take it away. 

The man then punched the clerk, kneed him in the face several times and knocked him to the ground. He proceeded to pick up the beer and leave the store with the other men.
