Police are asking for help locating two shoplifting suspects after one of them allegedly pulled out a gun when his partner got caught.

It happened March 21 at the J.C. Penney located at the Citadel Mall in Colorado Springs.

Police say the pair was walking out of the store with merchandise they had not paid for when store employees stopped the female half of the couple.

That's when the man reportedly pulled out a gun and demanded she be released. The pair got away in what police believe is a silver Chrysler sedan.

The woman is described as being between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-9 with a medium build. She is in her 20s.

The man is also described as being in his 20s. He is about 5-foot-8 with a thin build.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP. Reporting parties do not have to give their name and could earn a cash reward.
