VIDEO: Walmart Customer Chokes Female Cashier In Unprovoked Attack

Peter James McGuaghran viciously attacked a Walmart cashier on Oct. 3, surveillance video showed.

Stuart, FL – A Walmart customer viciously choked a store cashier during an unprovoked attack, then attempted to assault officers who responded to the scene (video below).

The incident began just after 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 3, as Walmart clerk Libia Evans was bagging groceries at her checkout station, WPEC reported.

As she went about her work, a customer waiting in line suddenly approached her from behind and grabbed her head with both hands, security footage showed.

He then twisted Evans’ head to the side, shoved her against the counter, and began choking her.

During an emotional interview after the attack, Evans said that while she was being choked, all she could do was pray to God to help her, WPEC reported.

The suspect’s girlfriend, 38-year-old Jennifer Budd, and another bystander immediately intervened and pulled him away from Evans, Treasure Coast Newspapers reported.

Walmart loss prevention personnel rushed to the area and attempted to detain the combative suspect, who was later identified as 32-year-old Peter James McGuaghran, according to a press release from the Stuart Police Department (SPD).

When officers arrived at the store, McGuaghran “attempted to kick and head butt” them, the SPD said.

According to the arrest affidavit, investigators noted that there was a “heavy odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from [the defendant],” Treasure Coast Newspapers reported.

McGuaghran was ultimately arrested on charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest without violence, and battery, WPEC reported.

He was booked into the Martin County Jail on $11,500 bond.

Evans was transported to the hospital with minor injuries, according to Treasure Coast Newspapers.

It never said in the story why he attacked her...Was he drunk or on drugs or did he have a previous encounter with the cashier...not that it makes a difference because he was being an idiot in the first place!!!
