Store clerks, especially at big chain retailers, don’t usually try to take things into their own hands — at least not violently — when they think someone’s shoplifting.But that wasn’t true at this Brooklyn 7-Eleven.

An onlooker uploaded a video onto YouTube of 7-Eleven employees battling an alleged shoplifter, reports NBC 4 New York.

The video shows the man getting beaten and dragged around as he tries to get away. Eventually, his clothes getting totally ripped apart.

One of the workers involved has been fired, reports the AP. Two of the others are being “retrained.”

The 7-Eleven employees claim that the man had previously stolen a box of Snickers from the store.
