LOS ANGELES (AP) - Three men have been convicted of a takeover robbery at a Los Angeles clothing store during which an employee was sexually assaulted.

City News Service says Raymond Sherman Jr., Troy Hammock and Everett Allen were convicted Friday of dozens of counts of second-degree robbery.

Sherman also was found guilty of rape, forcible oral copulation and kidnapping.

Prosecutors say two years ago, the men took over a Nordstrom Rack at a mall near the Los Angeles International Airport. Fourteen workers were inside. Most were forced to strip to their underwear, one woman was stabbed in the neck and another was sexually assaulted during an hours-long ordeal.

The robbers fled before police arrived but were arrested days later, including Sherman, who was brought back from Phoenix, Arizona.
