SOUTH SALT LAKE -- The South Salt Lake Police Department needs help finding a man and a woman who robbed a gas station on March 7 and beat up the clerk over several cases of beer.

Police say the clerk caught two people trying to steal several cases of beer from a Maverik convenience store at 2650 S. Main St. He tried to stop them in the parking lot, but the suspects attacked and beat him.

When police arrived, the two suspects were long gone and the clerk was bleeding from a cut above his eye.

Surveillance video shows the suspects in the store. They were described as Hispanic, with the male suspect wearing a black shirt with the name "ZAPATA" on the front, and the female suspect wearing a black and white striped shirt.

Officials have received several tips, but at this point have not found the pair. Police believe they were involved in several other robberies in the area.

South Salt Lake Police are asking that anyone who knows the suspects in the pictures or videos contact Dispatch at 801-840-4000. All calls are confidential and callers can remain anonymous.
