BRENTWOOD, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Officers have two suspects in custody and have identified a third in connection to a December robbery inside a parking garage near the Brentwood MetroLink station. 

Christopher Mitchell, 23, and Alexis Jones, 21, have been charged with Attempted Robbery Second Degree. A third person involved in the incident has been identified but is not yet in custody. 

Police say recently released surveillance video shows the suspects attacking and robbing a woman at a well-known parking garage in Brentwood.

The video shows the victim getting out of her SUV to walk to a nearby restaurant to get some take-out.

On the video the three suspects---two men and a woman---walk toward her. One grabs her from behind and drags her back to the SUV.

Another woman approached, a witness who heard the victim's screams.

The victim was able to get away from her attackers and the three suspects ran away.

Police did not release the video or notify the public because they didn't want the suspects to flee if they knew they were being searched for. With two in custody, officers are working to locate the third. 

The department will also conduct a security assessment of the garage from a technology standpoint, schedule supplemental patrols to assist with existing security efforts in the garage and surrounding area and offer a free citizen safety course to increase awareness and help address situations like what happened in the garage.
