Investigators say the couple, who live in a nearby apartment complex, showed up at 'Estate and New Jewelry' Tuesday morning and made preparations to rob the store.
Duchene vacated her wheelchair, covered her face and upper body with a black plastic trash bag, and entered the store at which point she pulled out a kitchen knife and demanded “everything.”
Authorities say the store owner, Linda Bradley, opted not to cooperate with the robber, and retaliated by brandishing a stun gun. Bradley chased the the masked woman around the store for a bit before Duchene was finally taken to the ground by a customer who held her until police arrived. Del Castillo remained outside with the wheelchair.
“I knew I could outrun her, because she was obviously not very quick,” said Bradley.
The pair are being held on aggravated robbery charges, however a final list of charges are not yet available.
