The Aberdeen Police Department needs your help identifying three men who are accused of assaulting a Walmart employee and then robbing the electronics section Wednesday morning. 

Around 5 a.m., police say the three men entered the Walmart at 645 S. Philadelphia Boulevard and approached an employee in the electronics section. 

The men asked the employee to show them smart watches, but when they unlocked the storage area, the men attacked the employee. Police say the group of men pushed the employee to the ground, and then one of the suspects pepper sprayed them. 

While the employee was down, they stole various electronics from the store, got in an unknown car, and drove away. 

If anyone knows the identity of these subjects, please contact Sgt. Tomlinson of the Aberdeen Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division at 410-272-2121.
