A team of young people reportedly committed an armed assault inside the CVS store at 12th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue SE and are now being sought by police.
The juveniles assaulted and pulled a knife on someone about 4:45 p.m. last Monday, Jan. 26, Officer Aziz Alali, a police spokesman said today.
Surveillance video from the 500 12th St. SE store shows three boys and a girl with bright red hair enter the store individually and then leave together.
The victim was not cut by the knife, Alali said. He declined to disclose whether the victim was also a juvenile.
In October in the same CVS, a woman assaulted a man and threw a model of the Grim Reaper at him.
