OKLAHOMA CITY -- Two men who tried to swipe beer became frustrated when they couldn't get out of an Oklahoma City convenience store.

The men walked into the 7-Eleven Store at 1520 S.W. 59th Street on Saturday, May 21. They grabbed two 20-packs of beer and tried to leave the store without paying, but the door they tried to escape through was locked.

When the two men couldn't get out, one of them pulled a gun and pointed it at a store clerk. The suspects then left through another, unlocked door. No one was hurt.

Police have released several pictures of the suspects taken from surveillance video.

Anyone with information about the identities of the suspects should call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300.
