Mountain View police are looking for a man who walked into a convenience store and then whipped out a knife. But instead of just putting out a simple news release on Wednesday, the police department has tweeted a 14-second YouTube video of the surveillance footage of the Aug. 8 incident.

Police say just before 8 p.m., a mustachioed man wearing a beanie knocked on the door of the business demanding service. When the owner refused, the man took out a knife, police said. The man was accompanied by a woman, wearing a black-and-white tank top, and the two took off.

The video does not show the man taking out a knife.

Police are hoping that if you recognize the couple you will call Det. Mason Motomura at 650-903-6364 or email him at mason.motomura@mountainview.gov.
