When the cashier attempted to call 911, the man told her not to call police and stayed in the store for a few minutes trying to intimidate her from calling for help. When the couple finally left the store, the cashier called 911. The entire incident was captured on video surveillance.
Anyone with information on the two individuals is asked to call Swampscott Police at 781-595-1111.
