A woman from North Carolina has been arrested after she attacked a customer at Lehigh Valley Mall’s Macy’s on Sunday. She then threatened to “kill everyone.”


The Lehigh Valley Live reports that the 47-year-old woman, identified as Karen Holmes from Greenville, was charged with simple assault, harassment, and disorderly conduct. She was sent to Lehigh County Jail with a $7,500 bail.

Police were notified of the incident around 3 p.m. The complaint involved Holmes assaulting a customer, who said that he saw her “screaming and pacing up and down an aisle.”

The man, upon seeing Holmes walking up to her, said “shut the hell up,” as per court records. The suspect then pushed the man, spit on him, and grabbed his neck. The confrontation was stopped when two passers-by pulled Holmes away from the man.
