Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Three attempted shoplifters couldn't get away with any merchandise but left a security guard badly beaten.

Security camera footage captured a clear look at each of their faces.

Police say when two security guards stopped them to accuse them of shoplifting they began beating the guards.

They then took off in an older model red SUV.

The guard they beat up will survive but the suspects are wanted for aggravated assault.

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.


MARANA, Ariz. -- The holiday DUI crackdown netted another law enforcement officer over the weekend.

A Marana police officer was busted for driving under the influence in Oro Valley.

Irasema Teran, 31, was also driving with a suspended license.  She was arrested and booked into the county jail.

Tests were given to assess her blood-alcohol level, and results are expected in about a month.
