Two men attempted to rob a South Peoria grocery store at gunpoint Saturday evening.

The robbers, both wearing scarves over their faces, entered North Spring Meat Market, Inc., 511 Spring St., about 7:50 p.m. and demanded money from two employees behind the counter, according to police reports.

One robber shoved one of the employees and repeatedly punched him in the face while demanding he open the register. The other robber pointed a handgun at the two employees and ordered them to get down on the ground.

The clerk who had been hit then pushed the two robbers into each other before they ran off in an unknown direction without money.

The clerk who was beat up refused medical attention, though police noted he suffered visible injuries to both his left eye and forehead.
