Fresno police are looking for two suspects who threatened to tase a store employee after stealing merchandise.

It happened on January 14th at the Cricket Wireless store on Cedar near Dakota ave. 

Police say the two walked around the store, the male suspect then asked the store employee to see a specific type of wireless speaker. While the clerk was getting the speaker from the back, police say the male suspect walked behind the store counter and took two wireless speakers. 

As the clerk tried to stop him from leaving with the speakers, the suspect held out a taser, made it spark and yelled at the clerk to move from the door.

Police tell us the clerk feared for her safety and walked away from the door. 

The two suspects were last seen fleeing the store in a northern direction along Cedar Avenue.

If you have any information you are urged to contact the Fresno Police Department.
