Police have a warrant to arrest two women in connection with a robbery at Walmart.
The robbery started as a shoplifting attempt when one of the two women allegedly put some cosmetics in her purse and left the store without paying,
according to Liz Wylie, a spokeswoman for the Mountain View Police Department.
A plainclothes security guard told the women -- a 21-year-old from Palo Alto and a 25-year-old from Sunnyvale -- to stop. They refused and he attempted to escort them inside, Wylie said. When the man grabbed one of the women by both arms, she pushed him and ran, getting into a yellow Mitsubishi and driving off, Wylie said.
The security guard wrote down the car's license plate number and police were able to identify the women, Wylie said. "We have requested warrants for both of them," but no arrests have been made.
No one was injured in the incident.
