Silent Witness and the Phoenix Police Department are asking for the public's help in identifying a couple accused of shoplifting and attacking a store employee.

Police report that on 6:40 p.m. on September 5, a man and woman entered the Safeway near 7th Avenue and Osborn Road. 

The suspects reportedly concealed various items from the store and tried to leave without paying. 

An employee tried to stop the two as they were leaving which led to the male suspect pulling out a box cutter and cutting the employee. 

The two then fled the area.
