COBB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Two shoplifting suspects are now in custody after one of them crashed their car into a wooded area in Marietta.

Marietta Police responded to a shoplifting incident at a Wal-Mart on Cobb Parkway, Tuesday afternoon.

An officer was in the process of handcuffing the two suspects when one of them attempted to draw a knife and menace the officer with it. The officer drew his firearm in response and the suspect then fled on foot. 

He fled into a pickup truck in the parking lot. He ultimately lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a wooded area on the entrance ramp from Highway 41 to South Cobb Drive.

He fled into the wooded area on foot but was caught by officers.
