Police are searching for three people who were captured on video running down an alley around the time of an armed robbery on the H Street corridor.

The robbery happened at Vendetta Bocce Bar & Tavern (1212 H St. NE) just as it was closing down on July 21, according to authorities.

Three men demanded property at gunpoint when they entered the bar and obtained an undetermined amount of money, police said. One of the thieves also struck an employee before they fled through the back door.

Video police distributed yesterday in connection with robbery shows three people running down an alley and then a black car driving away.
