Police searching for violent robbers

Reporter: Stephanie Gailhard

A search is now underway for the crooks who shoved an employee into a vault. It happened at a Check Smart store on Lake Worth Road and Military Trail.

Greenacres police tell Fox29 they are looking for the two robbers who they consider armed and dangerous. Detectives say sometime after 9 p.m. Wednesday night, two men tried to rob a man inside the story. That's when, police say, it appears it turned violent.

The victim told investigators at least one of the robbers hit him over the head with a heavy object, and then tried to forced him into the vault. Police then say the two suspects then ran off.

Investigators spent several hours on the scene Wednesday night dusting for fingerprints, looking for evidence and interviewing witnesses.
