Police beat Chicago men accused of entering their own store

Two brothers say they were beaten by Chicago Police as they closed up their business on the city's Southwest Side. 

Michael and Adrian Ayala claim the attack was captured by a security camera outside their store on South Archer.

Several police officers, including a sergeant, were allegedly involved in the incident on Tuesday.
Police apparently thought the brothers were attempting to rob the store, but the men say they did nothing to provoke the beatings.

In a statement, Chicago Police said, "The alleged conduct does not represent the high standards of professionalism and excellence maintained as core values of the department and which officers demonstrate on a daily basis serving and protecting the community."
Both Chicago Police and the Independent Police Review Authority are investigating the allegations.
