Police are looking for the woman who sprayed Lysol in a cashier's face at the Leicester Walmart on March 27.

Leicester, MA – Police are looking for an outraged Walmart shopper who sprayed Lysol disinfectant in the cashier’s eyes when she was informed there was a limit on how many cans she could buy.

Police said the incident occurred on March 27 at the Walmart Supercenter located on Soojian Drive, MassLive reported.

“She then completed her purchase and left in what is believed to have been an Uber,” the Leicester Police Department said in a statement.

Police said paramedics responded to the scene to treat the cashier who had been assaulted, MassLive reported.

Shortly thereafter, authorities released a picture of the suspect that was captured from the Walmart store security camera video.

Anyone with information about the suspect or her whereabouts has been asked to call Leicester Police Officer Matthew Soojian at (508) 892-7010 ext. 2066 or email him at soojianm@leicesterpd.org, MassLive reported.

Walmart and other stores began placing limits on the number of some “essential” products that customers could buy at one time after the initial spread of the pandemic in the United States caused shoppers to swamp stores and begin stockpiling.

Shoppers have been taking out their coronavirus frustrations on store employees all over the country, but cashiers may have taken the brunt of it.

A Florida man was arrested on Tuesday after he intentionally coughed on the cashier at Harbor Freight Tools in Orange City, Florida, FOX News reported.

The cashier told police that 49-year-old Christopher Canfora had come to her register and complained about the social distancing measures that the store had implemented as per Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines, such as tape on the floor to mark where shoppers should stand in line.

She said he coughed on her intentionally and told her “this is all getting out of hand,” FOX News reported.

"She said Canfora then explained that he does the same to people wearing masks when he sees them, and he was planning on going to another store and doing it some more," the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said.

Police arrested Canfora at his home in DeBary at about 3 p.m. on April 7, FOX News reported.

He told Volusia County sheriff’s deputies that “he didn’t expect anyone to understand his sense of humor and he couldn’t remember exactly what he said at Harbor Freight.”

And he said that he didn’t have coronavirus, FOX News reported.

Canfora was charged with aggravated assault and booked into Volusia County Branch Jail.

He was ordered held on a $5,000 bond, FOX News reported.

This world event has helped to identify those who don't handle stress very well.

My cousin lives in Australia! He got back from a cruise and was quarantined for two weeks. He was really low on groceries, went to his local store, where the shelves are virtually empty and they had signs limiting purchases. He tried buying 4 cans of something that had a limit of 2......evidently they've got LE trying to enforce and he wss almost arrested! He explained his circumstances and let him go. This shows how fragile our infrastructure really is.

The Corona virus is the least of our worries. It's definitely not as serious as the sickness of society today. With all the anarchists, rebels, the entitlement gang, the Squad, those that physically attack LE's, I could go on, but the Corona virus is nothing compared to the anarchy and rebellion sickness in society...

If she got into an Uber, she can be tracked down by her credit or debit card information!! All stores have been putting limits on a lot of items and there was absolutely no justification for what she did to this cashier!! I hope they arrest her and make her pay a humungous fine!!! Hoodrat bitch!!

Some people were simply raised or society has led them to believe the dollar is always right! If they are willing to part with it your obligated to sell it Damn the rules. Some even believe any comment, say like, I’m shopping for x families? Should automatically mandate you to make an exception. Simply because you know the rules your company requires you to enforce is wrong.
Certain things about people they believe changes everything!
It’s simply called Entitlement!
