Teens caught on camera beating store clerk

Police are searching for a group of teenagers seen on video beating a store clerk.

It happened at a store on Cascade Avenue in southwest Atlanta.

The teens did not stop until the clerk stopped moving.

Ibrahima Gaye says it all happened Dec. 5 while he was working at a neighborhood business on Cascade Avenue.

Frightening video shows the moments the teens stormed inside the store and started beating Gaye.

Gaye says they even broke an ashtray over his head.

While he screamed for help, security camera footage shows one of the teens stealing the cash register as his partners in crime continue their bloody beatdown.

It sent Gaye to the hospital with multiple injuries, including a gash on his head.

"A lot of blood. A lot of blood (came) from my head,” Gaye said.

According to Atlanta police, this isn’t the first time the teens have terrorized the business.

In fact, on the night before the robbery, surveillance video shows the same three teens harassing the clerk right before they take off with a handful of stolen snacks.

On Friday, police confirmed the arrest of Attila Balogh, 17, on charges of robbery by force and aggravated assault. Now, they're hoping someone will recognize the other two suspects, before they strike again.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
