ORIGINAL STORY: Police need your help identifying five people accused of ripping off a local nail salon, injuring two workers along the way.
Surveillance video shows the three men and two women walking into Vanity Nails & Spa near Las Vegas Boulevard and Warm Springs Road. The video shows them acting strange. For instance, one of the employees says the two girls were waiting in the back of the building by the back door and the three men were being loud and obnoxious, even throwing money into their air at one point.
"They act like they in the strip club or something," said Vanity Nails & Spa employee Henry Tran.
The two girls got their nails done and eyebrows waxed. The three men were in and out of the salon as they waited for the girls to be done.
The employees tell 13 Action News, the girls said the men would be paying.
Towards the end of the video, you can see one of the men counting the cash. He then starts to hand it over to employee, Kristy Vu. He quickly snatches it back and shoves Vu into the door as he runs out following his four friends.

One employee, Danny Vu, tripped on his way and fell down. He says one of the bad guys came back and punched him in the face and spit on him.
"While he (bad guy) was running away, he said, if you call the police, I will come back at kill you."
