Wichita police are reviewing video from a surveillance camera that may show the identity of two robbers they say beat a store clerk and took 5 to 10 packs of cigarettes.

The robbery happened at 2:30 Sunday morning at the QuikTrip in the 3900 block of West 13th Street, according to Sgt. Bart Brunscheen, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department.

Two men entered the store, jumped over the counter, punched the clerk and then stole the cigarettes.

They put the cigarettes in a backpack and fled from the store.
