As this was happening, two other men entered the store.

The two employees and one customer were handcuffed and pepper-sprayed.

The suspects took an undetermined amount of cash and cell phones from the store, as well as the victims' personal property.

They fled out the rear of the store.

One of the victims was able to use a cell phone to call 911. The victims were taken to Boca Raton Regional Hospital for treatment, Boonenberg said.

The suspects are described as four black men. Two are in their late 30s, one is heavy-set, around 6-feet tall with hair on his chin; the other has a thin build, is between 6-feet and 6-feet, 4-inches tall and has crooked teeth. The two other suspects are in their mid 20s and around 5-feet, 8-inches tall .
