The following information was supplied by the Milton police department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.
A Mayfield Road resident reported to Milton police that a woman who had threatened her before made terroristic threats again while she and her daughter were shopping in Walmart on Feb. 17.
The victim said the suspect approached her and her juvenile daughter while they were in the food section of the store. The woman told the victim she was going to shoot her in the parking lot. The suspect also told her she remembered her from another encounter they had at the
Walmart on Haynes Bridge Road.
The victim said she told the woman to leave her alone and to walk away from her and her daughter. She then called 911, but the suspect kept following them in the store. So she took her daughter to the Loss Prevention office and waited for police to arrive.
When an officer arrived, he was unable to find the suspect inside the store or in the parking lot. A check of surveillance video showed the suspect leaving the store and getting into a blue four door hatchback.
