LEXINGTON (WKRC) - Police in Kentucky are searching for two shoplifting suspects that pepper-sprayed a Walmart employee.

WLEX reported that witnesses heard the Walmart greeter ask one of the suspects for his receipt.

That's when they saw him pepper-spray the 80-year-old woman.

"She had orange all over her face where they had sprayed her. We got her in a wheelchair to make sure that she could walk, because she couldn't see anything, I mean, she was completely blinded by it."

The two suspects, a man and a woman, left in a maroon minivan with Oklahoma license plates.

A Walmart employee said the greeter is okay.

Mt. Sterling Police are asking for anyone with information on the suspects to give them a call.
