Washington, Oct 20 (ANI): Two people have been arrested for an unbelievable attempted jewelry store heist in El Paso, Texas.

Security camera footage showed the 44-year-old Noemi Duchene and 45-year-old Luis Del Castillo arriving outside of Estate and New Jewelry late Tuesday morning with Del Castillo pushing Duchene in her wheelchair.

Duchene then got out of her chair, covered her head and upper body with a large black trash bag and entered the jewelry store while Del Castillo waited with the chair.

Once inside Duchene pulled a kitchen knife and demanded "everything".

Storeowner Linda Bradely decided not to comply and drew a stun gun in response.

"We're chasing each other around like keystone cops," quoted Bradely as saying.

"I knew I could outrun her because she was obviously not very quick," Bradely added. store customer eventually tackled Duchene and held her until police arrived.

Del Castillo was still waiting outside with the wheelchair and was also arrested. Investigators say the pair lives in an apartment across the street from the jewelry store. (ANI)
