ABERDEEN, Md. (WMAR) — Two men allegedly held up an Aberdeen 7-Eleven at knife point, and the whole thing was caught on tape.
Aberdeen Police say it happened just before midnight on Tuesday in the 700 block of W. Bel Air Avenue.
Released surveillance footage shows the two suspects enter the store with their faces covered with what appears to be red and blue bandannas. At least one of the suspects is seen wearing gloves and carrying an object in the right hand.
Both men then approach the front counter, where police say they pulled a knife and demanded cash from the clerks.
The entire incident lasts just 21 seconds before the thieves flee the store with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police initially thought they were closing in on the suspects, when a K-9 track led them through the nearby Hill Side Terrace Apartments and to the back parking lot of the Hilton Garden Inn located at 1050 Beards Hill Road.
Ultimately, the search was unsuccessful.
Investigators are asking anyone with information to contact them at 410-272-2121, extension 138.
