University of Colorado police say a woman has been arrested after she used a stun gun on one of the book store's loss prevention officers and attacked another.

The Daily Camera reports that CU police spokesman Scott Pribble says two loss-prevention officers at the CU Book Store say they saw the woman stealing items. They took her into a back room to question her.

He says the officers say the woman attacked when they tried to stop her from leaving. Pribble says the officers were able to subdue the woman and were not injured.

The woman is believed to be a CU student. Police say it isn't clear what items she was suspected of trying to steal.
