Deputies are looking for a suspect who assaulted two loss prevention employees at a Walmart located at 7635 N. La Cholla Blvd. on October 15.

The male suspect had entered the store and placed a Bluetooth speaker and a water filter into a bag and tried to exit the store without paying for the items.

When the suspect was approached by the employees, he pushed past both of them causing minor injuries to one of the employees in the process. 

Witnesses reported seeing the suspect run to a blue-green Honda Civic and flee the scene. 

The male suspect is described as Caucasian, in his late teens or early 20's and approximately 6'. He has a thin build with short dark hair.

He was last seen wearing glasses, a maroon shirt, gray shorts and black athletic shoes. 

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
