A Manchester, New Hampshire, couple was arrested after assaulting a Lowes' loss prevention officer on Thursday night.

According to the Salem Police Department, loss prevention officers called the police after they were assaulted by a couple attempting to shoplift.

The loss prevention officer let the suspects go and called the Salem Police Department who located the vehicle.

The couple's 9-year-old son was in the backseat.
