The US police have launched a manhunt for a group of teenagers captured in a viral video assaulting two clerks working for a supermarket chain, 7-11 for allegedly refusing to sell a cigar to an underage girl.
According to the Mesquite Police Department, Texas, the girl had tried to purchase the cigarette at the 7-Eleven on Faithon P. Lucas Boulevard on Saturday night, June 3 but was denied, Fox News reported.
She left the store but returned with several other teenagers around 9 p.m. who then assaulted the employees, police said.
