BATAVIA, N.Y. (Democrat & Chronicle) - A woman spent her Christmas in jail, after she allegedly punched a Walmart greeter as she left the store on Christmas Eve.
Jacquetta Simmons, 26, was charged with two counts of second-degree assault, State Police Trooper Tracy Patterson said. She faces a second count because the victim, Grace Suozzi, 70, is older than 65.
Patterson said Simmons is accused of punching and knocking down Suozzi at 11:23 a.m. after the employee asked Simmons to see receipts for items the customer was carrying in store bags.
After hitting Suozzi, Simmons ran out of the store, but employees and customers quickly surrounded her until police arrived.
Suozzi suffered fractures to the left side of her face and significant swelling, Patterson said.
Simmons on Sunday was being held in Genesee County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bail.
Patterson said Simmons had receipts for everything in her bags.
