The Pinal County Sheriff's Office has arrested two people who attempted to rob a market of two 18-packs of beer.

Saturday evening, PCSO received a 911 call from Skyline Market in San Tan Valley.

Authorities say 18-year-old Humberto Sanchez and a 13-year-old male entered the business and grabbed two cases of beer. They allegedly tried to leave the store without paying.

The clerk tried to stop them -- he caught the 13-year-old, but Sanchez made it out the door and fled on foot.

The teen struggled to escape and during the struggle, the clerk feared for his safety and used a stun gun on him.

The clerk used the stun gun three times while trying to restrain the boy, PCSO says. He was taken into custody.

Sanchez got away but was later located late Monday night. Sanchez has prior arrests for burglary, theft, disorderly conduct, and assault -- and deputies say he admitted to another recent residential burglary which occurred in the area.
