Police are searching for two people they suspect in a robbery at Walmart Sunday night.

According to preliminary information from the Montrose Police Department, a man and woman were leaving the South Townsend Avenue store with items for which they had not paid. When a clerk confronted them, the man allegedly drew and knife and slashed at the clerk in what was described by a patrol sergeant as a “near miss,” Chief Blaine Hall said.

The pair then fled in a silver-colored passenger sedan, that could possibly be a Ford Taurus.
