SMITHFIELD – An argument over a shopping cart reportedly led to a fight inside the Smithfield Walmart. Smithfield Police said they responded to Walmart on February 14th around 3:00pm for an affray involving two women, ages 49 and 66, both with Smithfield addresses.
A police spokesperson said the two women, who did not know one another, were in the grocery section shopping. One of the women moved a shopping cart that was reportedly in her way, upsetting the other person. Words were exchanged and the altercation turned physical.
An incident report indicated both victims sustained minor injuries but did not require medical attention at the scene.
Officers told both parties to speak with a magistrate if they wished to pursue charges. There was no immediate report either party had obtained a warrant.
No other shoppers were involved in the altercation.
In November 2015, Smithfield Police were called to Walmart following an altercation between two people after a shopping cart was not returned to the correction location in the parking lot.
