Carolyn Cuellar, who was at the customer service desk, told News12 New Jersey that she and her mother Maria were shopping at the store after just having lunch when she was attacked.
“I felt my head hit the wall and all I remember feeling was panic, like ‘She’s trying to kill me,’” Cuellar told the television station.
Jones was taken into custody after she was pepper sprayed by police and subdued by four officers, News12 New Jersey reported. She appeared in a Hudson County court Tuesday and was later released, the Journal reported.
In a statement, a Walmart spokesman said that, “Customer and associate safety is a top priority for us, and we’re sorry for what these customers experienced.”
“We’re grateful for the swift action of the North Bergen Police Department and will refer additional questions to them.”
