Sheriff’s investigators are looking for a man and a woman who robbed a northwest side Walmart last month.

At about 9 p.m. Aug. 25, the man and woman entered the WalMart Neighborhood Market, at 2175 West Ruthrauff Road at North La Cholla Boulevard.

“The store’s loss prevention officer observed the female in the cosmetics aisle putting multiple items in her purse,” Deputy Tracy Suitt, spokesman for the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, said in a news release.

At the cash register, the pair paid for some items, but not the cosmetics the woman had hidden in her purse. As they were walking out of the store, “the loss prevention officer stepped in front of them. He identified himself and told them they needed to return to the store,” Suitt said. “The male pushed the loss prevention officer in the chest and told the female to run. The male verbally harassed the loss prevention officer as the female ran across the parking lot. When the loss prevention officer went to call 911, the male ran across the parking lot and got away.”

The woman is described as 5-feet-6 and heavyset with red hair.

The man is described as is described as 5-feet-10 and heavyset with dark hair.

Anyone with information should call 911 or 88-CRIME.
