MOUNT STERLING, Ky. (AP) – Two people wanted in the pepper-spraying of an 80-year-old Walmart employee in Kentucky have been arrested in Oklahoma.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports 35-year-old George Michael Jude and 36-year-old Sandra Yeahquo were arrested Wednesday and were being held in the Tulsa County jail.

They are wanted on first-degree robbery charges in Kentucky.

Mount Sterling police said in a Facebook post that a man shoplifted several items and pepper-sprayed the victim when she tried to stop him Sunday. A woman was accused of being an accomplice and providing the pepper spray before they entered the store.

They fled in a minivan with Oklahoma license plates.

In Oklahoma, Jude has been charged with being a fugitive from justice, and Yeahquo was charged with larceny and being a fugitive. It’s unclear if they have lawyers.
