TUCSON, Ariz. -- Authorities in Tucson are looking for a female shoplifter who fled after assaulting a store employee with a full soda can.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department says the woman is described as being in her 20s with reddish hair.

Detectives say the woman was seen by employees of a TJ Maxx store putting shoes, underwear and other clothing in her purse.

A loss prevention employee of the store confronted the suspect. But she reportedly pushed him out of the way and then threw a soda can at him, striking him in the chest before running out of the store.
