The victim, Glenna Hays, told police she and a couple of family members were inside the store Saturday evening, just talking amongst themselves, when they were rudely interrupted by the alleged crazy lady, 33-year-old Alyssa Wright.
According to one of Hays’ family members, Wright eyeballed the trio as they were conversing and asked, “Are you talking to me?”
No word on whether Wright delivered the line with the correct inflection…
When the trio informed Wright that, no, they were not talking to her, she allegedly jumped Hays.
At some point during the beat down, Wright apparently pulled a knife and got to stabbin’. Fortunately, Hays’ relatives were able to pry the crazy lady off before any body parts were severed. Hays was able to transport herself to the hospital for treatment.
The store manager followed Wright out of the store and flagged down a passing police officer. She’s been ordered held on $5,000 bond.
Believe it or not, Wright is no stranger to the system. Shocking, right? According to the folks at jailbase.com, she was arrested on paraphernalia and assault charges in July of this year, public intoxication and trespassing charges in August and assault and theft in November.Tags: Alyssa Wright, Assault, Glenna Hays, Iowa, Linn's Super Market, Stabbing
