A woman was arrested for allegedly assaulting her mother while shopping in the Cherryvale mall on Tuesday.
According to police, the woman, who is also a mall employee, confronted her mother in the shopping center’s back aisle after her daughter said she wanted to buy her a toy and asked for a discount.
According a Cherryvale police report, the mother “grabbed her by the neck and slammed her head onto the counter, then threw her down on the floor.”
Police said the woman was able to get up and walk out of the mall, but she was arrested at the mall’s front desk for assault.
She was taken to a hospital for medical attention, where she remains in the custody of police.
