Without any provocation, a man at a Florida Walmart grabbed a cashier’s head, violently twisted it and mashed it against her workstation Wednesday afternoon.
Stuart police identified the attacker as Peter McGuaghran of Wilmington, Delaware, and released a video of the incident.
The cashier was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
McGuaghran, who was checking out with his purchases at about 5:30 p.m. just before the attack, faces several charges.
Walmart guards tried to detain McGuaghran. When police arrived, they said he “became combative as he attempted to kick and head butt officers.”
McGuaghran was charged with battery, resisting arrest without violence, assault on a law enforcement officer, and battery on a law enforcement officer.
He was held on a $11,500 bond at the Martin County Jail.
