Police are looking for two teenagers who beat up a store clerk while they were stealing beer, reports KTLA.

The two boys walked into a Circle K in Garden Grove at about 11 p.m. last night. One tried to walk out of the store carrying an 18-pack, reports the LA Times, and when the clerk asked them for ID both kids began punching him. The incident was caught on the store's surveillance tape.

Another customer tried to help but was also attacked, also neither he nor the clerk were seriously hurt.
