70-Year-Old Wal-Mart Cashier Punched By Customer On Christmas Eve

| by Michael Allen

26 year-old Jacquetta Simmons (pictured) and a male companion had made some electronics purchases in the back of the Batavia, N.Y., Wal-Mart when they were asked by Grace Suozzi, a 70 year-old Wal-Mart cashier, to show a receipt as they were leaving the store.

After Suozzi asked for the receipt, Simmons refused, Suozzi stepped out of her cashier box and Simmons punched her in the eye. “The cashier lady flew across the floor,” a witness said.

As Simmons and her companion fled the store, customers ran out of the store and surrounded the two, not allowing their car to leave until police arrived.

Simmons was arrested on two counts of second-degree assault. State Police Trooper Tracy Patterson told WMAZ-TV that Simmons faces a second count because Suozzi is older than 65.
