Tucson police are asking the public for help in identifying two people in connection with a robbery at a southeast-side Walmart.

On Jan. 4, a man and a woman were caught on a surveillance camera at the Walmart at 2711 S. Houghton Road, south of East Golf Links Road.

The store’s loss-prevention personnel saw the woman conceal items in her purse, said Officer Brandon Tatum, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.

She then began to walk with a man by her side out of the store without paying for the items, Tatum said. Store personnel approached the two and the man “pulled out a knife and swung it at three employees telling them not to touch the female,” Tatum said.

The pair left in a gold Cadillac.

The man was described as black and in his 30s. He is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs about 130 pounds. He was wearing camouflage shorts, a white shirt and a black baseball cap.

The woman was described as black or Hispanic. She was about 30 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighed 180 pounds. She had red highlights in her hair and was wearing blue jeans, a white shirt with a red jacket and was carrying a purse with a white strap.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
