Shoplifters at California J.C. Penney Caught Brawling With Security in Video

Security footage from a California J.C. Penney's shows suspected shoplifters fighting with loss prevention staff.

Two suspected shoplifters were caught on camera brawling with a security guard at a J.C. Penney store in California.

The fracas erupted on Monday after a loss prevention agent spotted the female suspects allegedly stealing jewelry, said Sgt. Mark Hudson of the Fresno Police Department.

"This agent was actually struck and bitten by one of the suspects, so that turns this into a robbery," he said, according to NBC affiliate KSEE.

Police are now looking for the suspects, who made off with about $180 worth of jewelry. They are believed to be ages 21 and 41.
