Food Max robbery caught on tape

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Police are looking for two men they believe robbed the Food Max on Lake Street late last Thursday night.

"These two guys need to go get a job. They are bullying these two clerks that work hard for their money," said Detective Jeff Keenum with Lake Charles Police.

According to some employees at Food Max, the men who allegedly robbed the store had been in several times before. Surprisingly, they never noticed the surveillance system that caught the whole thing on camera.

An employee at work that night said, when the suspect came behind the counter, he held him off for as long as he could. But, when the suspect reached behind his back, the clerk decided to play it safe.

"Maybe one knife, maybe one gun. Then I got scared, and I took two or three feet back," said Mohammed Khan.

That decision could have saved his life, but unfortunately the suspect made it out with cash stored underneath the counter. Police are asking for the community's help in catching the two suspects. If you have any information on this case, you are asked to call the Lake Charles Police Department at 491-1311.
