The second of two suspects sought after a stun gun assault on a Walmart greeter is now in custody, the Union County Sheriff’s Department said Thursday morning.

Officials said Natasha Hall is in Union County Jail; alleged accomplice John David Davis Jr. remains in jail.

Authorities said the couple was stealing a large-screen TV from the Walmart in Indian Trail last Sunday when a 65-year-old female store greeter asked them for the receipt. That’s when the stun gun was used on the woman.

The pair fled the store. Authorities arrested Davis, 42, of Matthews, on Tuesday.

Davis and Hall, 38, of Charlotte, were charged with common law robbery, while Davis also has a charge of assault with a deadly weapon over the use of the stun gun.
