TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Deputies from the Pima County Sheriff's Department are asking for the public's help in identifying two suspects in an armed robbery last month on Tucson's northwest side.

The man and woman are accused of stealing two bottles of liquor from the Safeway at 7110 North Oracle Road at West Ina Road on the evening of Sept. 21 and using an electronic stun gun device on a man who tried to stop them.

The woman is described as black with light skin. She was wearing a green shirt, jean shorts and black tennis shoes.

The man is described as Hispanic and was wearing a black T-shirt, jeans and a black hat.

According to a news release, the store's loss prevention officer observed the woman allegedly place the liquor bottles into her purse while the man stood by. The loss prevention officer identified himself to them when they walked out of the store. At this point the woman allegedly used the stun gun to incapacitate the loss prevention officer and the two suspects left in a white vehicle, the release said.

Anyone with information about the suspects or this incident is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
