OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Shoplifters sent a security guard to the hospital after stealing from Oak View Mall and then hitting the guard with their truck.

A Dillard’s employee said two shoplifters sprinted through the store’s front doors as they were chased by a security guard.

While the shoplifters were getting away in their truck, they hit the guard who had to be taken to a local hospital.

Omaha police are on the shoplifters’ trail. They’re searching for two suspects: a white man and white woman who got away in a white Ford pick-up truck. Police say it has two toolboxes on the sides of the truck’s bed.

The security guard was sent to Bergan Mercy. Police weren’t able to specify the injuries.

Officers are reviewing surveillance video to track down the two shoplifters.
