Two men causing trouble at the Rochester Hills Walmart fled from police and were eventually caught — with stolen alcohol and what appears to be a stolen van.
The incident began in the parking lot of the store at 2:43 a.m. Sunday morning. According to a report from the Oakland County Sheriff's Office, two men jumped from a van and were "about to assault one of the complainants when a friend pepper-sprayed one of the assailants."
The men got into the van and sped away; deputies located the van and tried to stop it, but the driver fled, the report stated. The van was eventually located parked and unoccupied in Pontiac; there were several bottles of stolen alcohol, with security devices still attached, in the van, the report stated.
Deputies eventually found one of the suspects at a home; they believe the van had been reported stolen last week in Waterford.
The investigation into the incident continues.
