The store employees tried to stop the suspected shoplifters. They were able to detain one woman but not the other two suspects.

The employees told FOX 4 the man tried to convince them to let his girlfriend go. He kept yelling something like, ‘Let her go! If you don’t let her go, I’ll come in and get her.”
