Nacogdoches — Surveillance video caught a Nacogdoches store robbery on tape.
It happened last Wednesday at the Kim Food Mart on Douglass Road.
Not one, but three robbers held up a store at gunpoint, but they didn't do so without a fight.
The video shows two young women's struggle to fight off robbers.
First, you see one of them point a gun at someone off camera.
He then makes his way behind the counter and starts taking money.
Two others appear -- one holding back a young woman resisting -- and another, holding down the other store employee.
The clerks are said to be a mother -daughter duo.
The younger woman is hit and thrown to the ground, but gets up and continues to run after the robbers.
All appear to be wearing masks and sweatshirts, hiding their gender and race.
Nacogdoches police say the robbers got away with some money.
No one was seriously injured.
The incident is still under investigation.
If you have any information on the robbers, call Crime Stoppers at 903-560-INFO (4636).
