Car Rental Agency Robbed at Gunpoint

Employees at a Payless car rental store in Orange County, Fla. were robbed by armed men on June 17, according to Sky News.

The suspects were in the store for less than five minutes, but it was enough time to chase all of the customers off the property, beat up a watchman and escape with some cash in a stolen Ford Focus.

Detectives say the suspects are still on the run.
