Auburn police are still looking for the three people who they say robbed a gas station as the clerk was having a heart attack.

Earlier this month, police released video of the incident, in which a gas station clerk confronted two teenagers who were eating pepperoni sticks without paying for them and then suffers a serious medical issue, collapsing to the floor.

The clerk, Zarif Kelada, is now back home from the hospital. He talked to KIRO 7's Jessica Oh on Tuesday night.

In the video, the teenagers are seen taking money out of the clerk's pocket, and then stealing merchandise and the money from the cash register before leaving without helping the man.

An adult man is seen in the video as well, leaving the store after the clerk suffers a medical emergency. Police said none of the three subjects in the video called for help.

A person who entered the store around three minutes after the teenagers left saw the clerk on the ground and immediately called 911 for help, police said.

It happened at the Shell gas station at 201 Auburn Way South in Auburn, Washington.

Police said all three of the people they were seeking have been identified. Auburn police thanked the public for their help identifying the people seen in the video.

If you have information, you're asked to call (253) 288-7403.

Attempt to Identify

** Someone knows who these people are who did not care at all about this man's well-being. Please help identify them so that they are brought to justice ** On 9/8/2018 at approx. 5:41 PM an adult male along with two teenage males entered the Shell gas station at 201 Auburn Way South in Auburn. One of the teenagers grabbed what appears to be a pepperoni stick from the counter and starts to eat it. He grabs a second one and gives it to the other teenager. The adult male then comes to the counter to purchase an item. It appears that the clerk attempts to charge the adult for the pepperoni sticks and an argument ensues. The clerk was given a dollar bill from one of the teenagers. The clerk becomes upset and approaches the teenagers and begins to talk to them. After speaking with them the clerk, with the dollar bill still in his hand, turns to return to the register area and immediately appears to have a major medical issue and collapses to the floor. One of the teenagers reaches down and takes the dollar bill back from the clerk while he is on the ground. The adult male then exits the store. While the clerk is on the ground unconscious, the two teenage males exit and enter the store a couple of times stealing merchandise and taking all the money from the cash register. While the clerk was on the ground dying, neither of the three subjects who saw him fall to the ground called for help. Approx. 3 minutes later a subject entered the store and saw the clerk on the ground and immediately called 911. Currently the store clerk is still alive but in critical condition. The Auburn Police Department is asking for the communities help identifying the three subjects who were in the store at the time the clerk fell to the ground. If you have any information regarding this incident please call the Auburn Police tip line at 253-288-7403.
