(KSL News) West Jordan police are asking for the public's help to find two would-be robbers who assaulted a convenience store clerk.

Police say two men entered the 7-Eleven at 6250 S. Dixie Dr. in West Jordan just after midnight on Monday. One lured the clerk to the coffee stand, where he then beat him up.

Sgt. Drew Sanders with the West Jordan Police Department said, "We don't have any reason to think they're armed, but they're certainly dangerous if they are willing to come in and assault a clerk like that."

The other man tried to break into the cash register, but it was locked. Both men fled without getting any money.

Police believe they drove away in a bronze-colored 1990s Cadillac sedan. The vehicle did not have a license plate displayed.

The suspects are described as men who appear to be in their early to mid 20s, with dark hair and olive complexions. They are about 6 feet tall and weigh around 180 pounds. Anyone with information should call West Jordan police at 801-256-2000.
