TULSA - Tulsa police are searching for three people believed to have robbed a midtown Tulsa QuikTrip and beating the attendant.
Just before 4 a.m. police say three suspects entered the store at 21st and Memorial and picked up two 24-packs of beer. When the clerk asked if the suspects were going to pay for the beer police say two of the three beat the woman working behind the counter.
The victim sustained scratches and bruises but police say she wasn't seriously hurt.
The suspects fled the store with the beer and drove off in a car, according to a witness. They ditched the car in a nearby neighborhood and police say they ran into a wooded area.
The car has been searched and police do not believe it was stolen.
Police say all three suspects -- two men and a woman -- are Hispanic and either in their late teens or early 20s.
