Police hope surveillance video of a bold gas station holdup will lead to arrests.

In the video, you can hear the clerk plead for his life.

The robbery happened about 5 a.m. Sunday in Alexandria, Va. Authorities said two masked men stormed into the Shell gas station on Edsall Road and demanded money.

One man was armed with a gun. The video shows him rummaging through the register. The suspects then ran out of the store, jumped into a car and left the scene. The 27-year-old clerk was not hurt.
