Store manager says women tried to hit her with car | Crime
A convenience store manager unhappy with a couple of customers’ comments says she was nearly run over when she told them to leave and not come back.
Ruth Kimbrough is the manager of the Kum and Go at 4810 E. Highland in Jonesboro.
She told Police Officer Brian Lovins that just before 6 o’clock Thursday morning two women entered the store, talking loudly and using profanity.
When she asked the women to leave, Kimbrough says the one of the women yelled a four-letter word that begins with F as she walked out the door.
Kimbrough says she then went outside to tell the women “they were not to come back to the store.” She saw the women get into a four-door, silver Chrysler. While she was attempting to get their license plate number, Kimbrough says the “vehicle reversed towards her, attempting to run over her.”
Kimbrough told Lovins she had to run across “half the distance of the parking lot to avoid being run over.”
She said the women were “frequent customers” and she would recognize them. Officer Lovins told Kimbrough to call police if the women return. He also requested the store provide video copies of the women inside the store, as well as the incident on the parking lot.
