Two store clerks were assaulted Sunday when two men attempted to rob the AT&T Store at 6471 Old Beulah Street in the Newington/Kingstowne area.
Howard Ludwig, Fairfax County police spokesman, said the two male suspects initially entered the store around 12:34 p.m. and inquired about some merchandise.
That is when one of them punched an employee and stabbed another. Ludwig said the pair had stuffed store merchandise into a bag, but during the melee, they left behind the bag.
Injuries, he said, do not appear to be life threatening.
Police are looking for the men who fled in a red car. Ludwig says police are studying surveillance video and hope to have a better suspect description later.
