Police in Kentucky are looking for two suspects after a shoplifting incident turned violent.

An 80-year-old Walmart greeter was pepper-sprayed after she asked to see a man's receipt as he left the store.

"She had orange all over her face where they had sprayed her. We got her in a wheelchair to make sure that she could walk, because she couldn't see anything," said Kasey Pescor, a witness.

The woman is now okay, but the suspect and an accomplice are on the run.

The man accused of pepper-spraying the woman allegedly was handed the pepper-spray by a woman as they left the store.

Police believe both were shoplifting.
