CENTRAL FALLS, R.I. (AP) - Police in Central Falls are looking for two people who attacked an elderly woman and robbed the convenience store where she was working.

WPRI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1ziWLXz ) the 77-year-old woman was working at the One Stop Convenience Store Saturday around 9 p.m.

Surveillance video shows two people with their faces covered entering the store. One of them was holding a gun and jumped over the counter, overpowering the woman and putting her in a headlock. The video shows the woman on the ground fighting back as one of the suspects apparently tries to tie her up.

They dragged her into the back of the store and robbed it of cash and cigarettes. Police say she was injured but did not say how.

Police are asking anyone with information to call them.
