Three people are in trouble with the law after they went shopping at a Northwest side Walmart and didn't want to pay.

They're also accused of assaulting loss prevention officers.

Around 10:45 p.m. on Wednesday, police were called to a shoplifting incident at the Walmart on Vance Jackson near Interstate 10.

Loss prevention officers said a woman had put Big Red, socks and underwear in her purse.

When they saw what she was doing, the two men who were with her attacked two loss prevention officers. One punched one of those officers in the face.

The woman and the two men ran out of the store and jumped in the back of a white Ford F-150. The truck was later found on Gardenia.

All three will be charged with aggravated attempted robbery.
