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 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 observed 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," said Tatum.

The pair climbed into a gold Cadillac and left the store.

The man was described as an African American 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 African American or Hispanic. She was about age 30, 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.
