They hope you can help identify the robbers.

In one case, a clerk was attacked as he tried to stop thieves from stealing merchandise.

A store clerk and a suspect struggle inside the BP store next the interstate at exit 39. It happened March 25.

"There were no masks or hoodies involved or anything," said Adel Police Sgt. Jon Blake.

The clerk is left with a cut on his head. Police say the men were loitering in the store for about five minutes before the scuffle.

It was all over a necklace similar to this one that's valued at about $8. The store manager tells us when the clerk walked by to make coffee the suspect rolled up the necklace and stuck in his pocket.

Police say the clerk confronted the man for stealing the necklace and they say that's when he was assaulted.

"He pushed him toward the racks," said Nouman Chaubhry.

Then his head hit the corner of a shelf.

The manager says it was a busy night for the store but no one there called police.

"I guess no one wanted to get involved," said Chaubhry. "It's not that I'm blaming anyone or anything but still someone was hurt."

The suspects didn't leave quickly instead they hung around.

"Towards the bottom of the screen and looks like he's meeting somebody and giving them high fives or props," said Blake.

Police think this guy is the driver of the grand jeep cherokee they left in.

And last night around 9:18 this man walked into the Quick Change and stole a cash register. The clerk ran after him but couldn't stop him.

Police don't think these robberies are related and they need your help identifying these guys.

The robbers in that attack last month were driving a gold or pewter 1999 to 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The robber from Tuesday night's robbery is described as a black man between 5'10" and six feet tall, slim build, wearing a black hoody, black shoes, and a blue and white bandana over his face.
