SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) — Investigators say three young robbers are in jail after returning to a Southern California crime scene to retrieve liquor store surveillance camera video.

Los Angeles sheriff's Lt. Tom Bryski says the trio stole beer from Dooley's Liquor Store in the Newhall area of Santa Clarita on Sunday night and fled. They returned to the store about 85 minutes later to get the surveillance video.

The lieutenant tells City News Service that there was a scuffle and one of the robbers pulled a knife and slashed the store clerk's arm.

Deputies arrested 19-year-old Oscar Jimenez, 18-year-old Eduardo Salgado and a 17-year-old youth. They have been booked for investigation of theft, intimidating a witness and assault with a deadly weapon.
