Female employee stabbed at Clinton Walmart

CLINTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A morning of terror inside the Clinton Walmart: a knife-wielding man stabs a female employee, then paces through the packed store, weapons in hand.

Our crews found the automotive area taped off Saturday morning. Witnesses tell us around 9am, a man was seen walking down the store's main aisle carrying a folding knife and a club. A female employee from the oil change department ran toward the front of the store, with knife wounds to her left shoulder and her back. She says she does not know the man.

"One of the clerks came through the door, said someone had stabbed her," says witness Willie Frazier, a customer. "We got up, looked through the glass, the guy was out there trying to stab mechanics. Then he came in the store toward the customers, everybody headed toward the front."

The victim was treated at a local hospital and released.

Clinton Police were attempting to get the store's surveillance tape Saturday.

48 year old Jackie Spears of Jackson, Tennessee is charged with aggravated assault in the crime. Clinton Police say it appeared to be a random act.
