A pair of shoplifters escaped with a cartload full of stolen items after one of them pulled out a "Taser style weapon" as a loss prevention worker tried to stop them, authorities said.

It happened about 7 p.m. at the Little Rock Kmart, 10901 N. Rodney Parham Road.

According to a Little Rock police report, the loss prevention worker saw the two women fill a cart with assorted items and then leave the business without paying.

After catching up to the women and identifying himself outside, one of them "pulled out a Taser style weapon and shocked it at him," the report said, noting the man was about 6 feet away at the time.

"He advised that he walked behind them as she did this again," the report said.

The two women then got into a gray 2004 Honda Civic and drove off, getting away with about $100 worth of clothing and baby merchandise.

The car's license plate returned to a Little Rock address, but authorities went there and didn't find it.

The shoplifter with the weapon was described as a white woman in her 20s who stood 5-foot-6 and weighed about 130 pounds. She wore a red knit beanie cap, a red sweater and jeans.

The other suspect was described as a black woman in her 20s who stood 5-foot-6 and weighed about 140 pounds, police said. She wore a yellow shirt and black pants.

Are they shoplifters or is it either armed or aggravated robbery?

If she brandished a taser or stun gun, he could have given her a nice roundhouse kick to the knee and taken her down, easily.
