Police are asking for the public's help in identifying three suspects in a liquor store robbery caught on surveillance video in South Los Angeles.

The suspects robbed the store in the 6000 block of South Avalon Boulevard about 8:30 p.m. Sunday night, police said. Two of the men were armed with semiautomatic handguns.

One clerk was able to run away and lock himself inside a back room, police said. Another clerk obeyed commands to empty the cash register.

The suspects made their getaway in a gray four-door compact car, police said.

The men may have been responsible for other robberies in the area, police said. A fourth suspect may have driven the getaway car.

Anyone with information is asked to call Newton Division robbery detectives at (323) 846-6572.
