A pair of shoplifters who allegedly stole items from a Target store in the Oak Park neighborhood — then turned a stun gun onto a security team member — were being sought by San Diego police.

A Hispanic couple entered the store inside the Marketplace at the Grove Shopping Center, 3424 College Ave., on Friday around 5:30 p.m. and shoplifted several items, according to Officer Robert Heims.

As they left the store, at least one loss prevention officer attempted to make an arrrest but the female suspect pulled out a stun gun and attempted to shock the guard, Heims said.

She missed the officer and there were no injuries, Heims continued.

Both suspects fled the scene.

As of Sunday afternoon, the pair remained at large. The male was described as being thin, wearing a black baseball cap and black shirt. The female was described as being in her 20s, with a medium build, wearing a pink beanie and pink sweater.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the San Diego Police Department.
