When a 75-year-old great-grandmother was shopping at an Atlanta Wal-Mart Sunday morning, she needed to sit in one of the stores’ mobility scooters.
“I always ride because my knees are bad,” she told WSB-TV.
And then her ride took a scary turn.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the woman, Sandra McClung, accidentally ran into another shopper. The pair were in the bread aisle, WSB said, and the other shopper was angry.
So much so that Alexa Venderburg cursed at McClung to move out the way, the paper said, citing a police report.
But McClung wasn’t about to let Venderburg get away with the insult.
“As I went around her, I said, ‘You’re the b***h,’” she told WSB.
With that, Venderburg sucker-punched McClung and then beat her in the face, the paper said, adding that the police report indicated McClung’s nose was “bleeding profusely.”
WSB said the attacker punched the victim five times in the face.
“I had my glasses on and she just kept socking me in the glasses and then she socked me in my mouth because my mouth is real sore,” she told the station, which reported that her arms are bruised from trying to defend herself.
“I kept screaming ‘Help!’ ” the victim told WSB. “Nobody came.”
When store security arrived, the attacker was long gone — but left behind something rather important.
“I reached down to pick it up, and it was her phone. She had dropped her phone in my buggy,” the victim told WSB with a smile. “Seems God did that so we could find her.”
The station said the attacker could face simple assault and battery charges. The paper said that police are still looking for Venderburg.
“There had to be something wrong with her because you just don’t do that,” the victim told WSB.
