A woman attempted to steal nearly $100 worth of meat from a Little Rock grocery store before turning "violent," stripping off her clothes and escaping from employees who tried to detain her, police said.

It happened about 9:30 p.m. Monday at the Food Giant at 7507 Cantrell Road.

Little Rock police say the store manager and security guard reported the woman attempted to take eight packages of meat worth $96 by stuffing them in her purse.

When the employees approached the woman she "became violent and stripped off her clothes as they tried to detain her," according to a police report.

"The suspect left in an unknown direction on foot in her underwear," the report added.

Police searched the area but didn't make an arrest.

It wasn't immediately clear whether the woman got away with the meat.

The suspect is described as a white woman who stands about 5-foot-6 and weighs 170 pounds. She was wearing a black-and-blonde wig, a white Pulaski Tech hooded sweatshirt and bluejeans, police said.

In her defense, that grocery store is located in a strip mall.

At 5 foot 6 and 170 lbs. it was probably hard to hang on to her and cover their eyes at the same time.

as a former grocery store owner -- I had a shoplifter stuff cartons of smokes down his sweat pants which fell down as we chased him across the parking lot ....we retrieved some of the smokes in the parking lot ... cops caught the guy hiding under boat at a nearby residence!

Teach employees how to tackle --- My grandmother would say "poor misguided soul"............and in her underdrawers, too. I'm having trouble being sympathetic. Except to the store employees.
