Woman Pours Bleach on Customer, Child at Target: Police

Police are searching for a woman accused of pouring bleach on a customer and a 1-year-old child during an argument at a Target store in Wilmington, Delaware.

Police say a 24-year-old woman was shopping at the Target Store on 1050 Brandywine Parkway in Wilmington around 5:50 p.m. on August 4 when she was approached by another customer who was angry that she was blocking the aisle with her shopping cart.

The victim told police she moved her shopping cart to the side to allow the suspect to pass. The suspect then struck the victim’s cart with her own shopping cart and the two women began to argue, police said.

The suspect then allegedly took out a bottle of bleach and poured it on the victim, according to investigators. Police also say the bleach splattered onto the toddler who was inside the victim’s shopping cart.

The suspect then fled the store and was last seen in surveillance video entering a white vehicle with a man inside, police said.

The 24-year-old victim and the child were both taken to Wilmington Hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police released a surveillance photo of the suspect. If you have any information on her identity, please call Corporal Michael Fiore at 302-761-6677.
