Times are hard. But if you and your homegirl are planning to shoplift a certain Philadelphia 7-Eleven, pick a different location.

Two women accused of shoplifting a Philadelphia 7-Eleven found themselves locked inside the store by employees.

By the time a lone police officer arrived and confronted the women, one of them got a little jumpy and swung on the cop. She was immediately thrown into the display shelf and body slammed to the floor.

The other girl tried to intervene by hitting the officer. Meanwhile, her friend -- who must have been a wrestler in high school -- rolled the officer over and starts punching and kicking him. He punched her in the face to subdue her.

Neither woman was shot or Tazed -- a miracle in these days and times.
