      Female workers terrorized and assaulted by armed, masked duo

      It looked like a scene that plays out on a movie, and will forever haunt the store employees at several Weslaco area stores.

      Ibidaisy is one of those employees.

      "At that moment, in my mind I thought he TMs going to rape me, he was going to kill me, she said among sobs.

      Two masked men barged into FM Food Mart #1 in Hidalgo County on Monday, holding two store clerks at gun point.

      The men struck Ibidaisy time and time again, demanding cash. She said she did not think she would make it out alive. "They just had us both there," she tearfully said.

      What the surveillance video does not show is when one of the masked gunmen allegedly put his hands down her co-workers pants.

      She has not returned to work since that day.

      "They were customers, store owner Lori Edri said about the thieves. They were from the area.

      Edri added that the two men did not stop at that store.

      They robbed another of his stores on FM 88 on Tuesday, surveillance video also caught them there, using as much brutality on the female employees.

      For Ibidaisy, coming back to work was not easy, but she does it for her family.

      "We TMre out here working out of necessity, our kids await us, our family awaits us, she concluded. Authorities now believe the two masked gunmen could be linked to a string of violence crimes robberies in the county and Weslaco area.

      Weslaco Police are offering a reward to anyone with information that leads to the gunmen TMs arrest.

      Their Crime Stoppers line is at (956) 968-TIPS.
