Woman Charged With Punching Elderly Walmart Greeter

December 28, 2011 at 8:26 am by  

BATAVIA, NY — A woman was arrested on Christmas Eve after police say she punched a 70-year-old Walmart greeter in the face after the employee asked to see her receipt.

According to reports, 26-year-old Jacquetta Simmons and her male companion were leaving the store on Christmas Eve after having purchased some items at the electronics section located in the back of the store.

When Grace Suozzi asked to check her receipts against the items she was carrying out, Simmons punched the elderly woman, knocking her to the ground and fracturing the bones in the side of her face.

Simmons and her friend fled to the parking lot but other employees and customers quickly surrounded their car and prevented them from leaving until police showed up.

Simmons was arrested and charged with two counts of second-degree assault, and released later on $40,000 bond. She’ll be back in court January 23. State Police Trooper Tracy Patterson said Simmons had receipts for everything in her bags.

Suozzi was taken to the hospital and released from the hospital on Christmas Day.

We can argue the legality of a store’s practice of treating all customers like criminals and possibly violating the Fourth Amendment that protects us from unreasonable searches (from government officials, not a 70-year-old Walmart greeter) but no matter what your stance, why take out your frustration on an elderly employee?

Personally, I have no issues showing my receipt as it is a minor inconvenience and I understand why retailers do it, especially in this day and age of pocket sized electronics worth hundreds of dollars. But if I have to wait over 5 minutes, I simply walk out. I’ve never had an issue.
