The incident took place at 7 p.m. on the 1000 block of Emerick Street, where deputies were called in to the scene to respond to a retail fraud.

Police said two store employees said they were attacked by the suspects when they had confronted the suspects while in the process of stealing $12 worth of food.

One of the employees reported being hit in the head with a glass jar filled with cheese by one of the suspects.

Police said a second employee reportedly chased the two suspects out into the parking lot, where he was reportedly hit in the face with a salsa jar.

Witnesses said the suspects fled the scene in a white Grand Am. Police were able to report a partial plate number, 393-LWR, which was unknown to the state.

The suspects are both described as African American. The first is described as a 6-foot, 1-inch-tall male wearing a stocking hat, gray jacket and blue jeans. Witnesses said he had short hair.

The second suspect is described as a 5-foot, 11-inch-tall female wearing a tan jacket and blue jeans with a scarf around her head.
