‘I Lost It': Worker's Outburst Injures 2 at Montgomery County Kohl's Store: Police

An employee at a department store in Montgomery County is facing charges after he "lost it" during a disturbance that injured two co-workers, police said.

Police were called to the Kohl’s store on S. Township Line Road in Royersford about 3:45 a.m. Wednesday.

The store was closed and only employees were inside at the time.

According to investigators, 22-year-old Anthony Wiglusz Jr. asked co-workers for a dollar. Wiglusz Jr. then asked for more money and that is when he told police "next thing I know, I lost it.”

Police say Wiglusz Jr. threw several items, including a chair, at a 64-year-old female co-worker in the store’s break room. A 32-year-old woman tried to intervene, but police say she was pushed into a table.

Three male workers then came into the room and were able to detain Wiglusz Jr.

Once in custody, police said Wiglusz Jr. told them he ingested two narcotic pills before his shift.

The two female workers were taken to Pottstown Memorial Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.

Wiglusz Jr. is facing charges of simple assault, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and harassment.

Kohl's released the following statement about the incident: "A police investigation is under way into this matter. We are cooperating with the authorities leading the investigation and are referring all media inquiries to the local police department."
