TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Police Department has identified the second suspect suspect involved in a robbery at a local pawn shop, police said. 

TPD said 23-year-old Danielle Mariah Sanchez was arrested Sunday night, July 16.

TPD said the other suspect, 33-year-old Daniel Dionte Moore, was located at the Pima County Jail where he had been booked by the Pima County Sheriff's Department on an unrelated charge.

The Tucson Police Department said the two suspects were involved in a robbery at a local pawn shop where a worker was attacked.


The incident happened on Thursday, July 13 at around 2 p.m. at the Quick Trip Pawn Shop near Prince and Flowing Wells Road. 
 


Police said a worker tells a man came in with a gun then pistol whipped an employee before running away.

Store manager Tim Backus said the employee tried running after a man and a woman he claims "worked together" to steal a gun worth about $400.

He said his employee was hit on the left side of his head near the street. 

Backus released surveillance video Friday which appears to show a woman asking an employee to see a gun before taking it and running out of the front door.

"He clears the gun because we always clear the gun before we hand it to anybody," said Backus as he describes the surveillance video. "She's taking a couple steps back and boom."

Minutes after she runs out of the door, the video shows a man running behind her. 

Then, an employee, seen wearing glasses and a gray shirt, is seen running after them. Backus said that employee was the one who was attacked.

"Next thing he knows, he's feeling woozy as he's dropping to the ground and he felt his head and there was blood coming out the side of his head," said Backus. "When you hit my employee in the side of the head for no reason? He would've never even touched either one of them?That irritates the crap out of me."

Backus said the store has since changed some of it's policies to increase the safety of its employees and customers.

"If they're willing to do this to somebody, they can do it to anybody out here," said Backus. "It could be somebody you care about."

If you have any information, you're asked to call 911 or 88-Crime.
