Two men were assaulted and robbed at a Columbia Harris Teeter this weekend, according to Howard County police.

At approximately 1:28 a.m. on Sept. 28, two men were attempting to rent a DVD at a Harris Teeter located in the 8600 block of Guilford Road when they were approached by four people, two men and two women, who started a conversation.

Two suspects began assaulting one of the men as the other two rifled through his pockets, stealing cash. The second victim ran inside the store to call police, prompting the suspects to flee, police said.
