(Newser) – A Walmart shopper in upstate New York slugged a 70-year-old store greeter who asked to look at the woman's receipts as she left, according to authorities. Jacquetta Simmons, 26, has been arrested and charged with two counts of assault for the attack that fractured the greeter's face and knocked her to the ground, said police. Simmons ran from the store but was immediately surrounded by store workers and held for police, according to witnesses. It wasn't clear why Simmons attacked the greeter; she had receipts for all of her merchandise, police told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.

This is really scary for senior citizens. It should not be made a race issue but an elder abuse issue. She probably would not have attacked this victim if she had been younger. I really hope this criminal is prosecuted to the fullest extent.

Crazy broad is crazy. She needs to actually be punished for this. So many people simply have no respect anymore for anyone.
