Investigators said Tarnisha Perkins, 29, was being walked out of Precision Cable after being fired for poor attendance in July when she separated herself and hit another employee four times, causing severe damage to the victim's nose, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

"It didn't look good. I was all black and blue, and my nose was all big, and it just looked like I got run over or something," Claudia Herrera told WISN. "It didn't look good, and I didn't want to look at myself in the mirror."

Herrera did not know why she was targeted. She was taken to the hospital for her injuries and told she would have to have reconstructive surgery, the Journal Sentinel reported.

As Perkins was leaving, after assaulting Herrera, she bit and punched a male employee who was working in the warehouse and tried to stop her.

Perkins was charged Monday with felony and misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct, WISN reported. She faces up to four years in prison and up to $20,000 in fines, WDJT reported.
