The Orange County Sheriff’s Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying two armed gunmen, captured on surveillance footage pointing a stun gun toward a clerk and robbing a convenience store in Stanton.
According to OCSD, the two men entered the store and pointed semi-automatic handguns at two clerks during the robbery.
One suspect, who can be seen on video carrying a handgun in one hand and a stun gun in the other, pointed the stun gun toward a clerk and activated it while demanding money from the cash register and the clerk’s purse, officials reported.

The suspects were last seen fleeing the store in a dark-colored vehicle with paper plates.
