August 8, 2016

Mt. Vernon Police reports indicate a woman was arrested after creating a disturbance in the Walmart store that may have resulted in two injuries.

The woman reportedly was screaming and throwing items in the pet aisle and punched two employees in the face.  She reportedly was armed with a knife, but reports do not indicate if the knife was used to cause any injuries. The woman’s name has not been released.   

Police reports indicate two people were taken to SSM Health Good Samaritan Hospital for treatment of injuries.  The woman was also reportedly taken to a hospital for treatment.   

The incident was reported to police at 9:33 Saturday night.  Walmart was evacuated as police handled the case.  Shoppers reported the store was still closed Sunday morning.  However, the store has since reopened.

Mt. Vernon Police say more information will be released on Monday.
