Michael Sheridan, NY Daily News, March 28, 2011

A 71-year-old greeter at an Ohio Walmart was choked by a pregnant woman and her mother, police said on Saturday.

The expectant mother also threatened to blow up the store, authorities said.

The ladies, Toni Duncan and her mother, Ashley Jackson, were at the super store in Elyria to visit the customer service desk, a police report stated.

When no one was on-hand to help them, the pair stormed out. They encountered the unidentified greeter at the door, and that’s when things went off the rails.

The elderly man asked to see a receipt, according to witnesses.

Both women hurled curses and racial epithets at the man, police said, before 21-year-old Duncan allegedly struck him with a shopping cart and then choked him.


“I’m going to blow Walmart up!” she yelled at least three times, according to the police report.


Police found Jackson and Duncan in the parking lot and questioned them. When asked if she threatened to blow up the Walmart, Jackson said, “Yeah, I did, I did, so there.”
