Police report: Store clerk hit customer in face

BELEN, NM (CNN) - A simple errand turned violent for one New Mexico woman.

Arelene Lujan says an employee at a discount store attacked her in the parking lot after a confrontation in the store.

"She asked her manager if she could clock out and go outside, and her manager said, 'Yeah.' So, she went out there and I was putting my daughter inside the truck and she just went at me," she said.

That when, according to a police report, the clerk hit her in the face.

"I was even shocked that she even did that, knowing that my daughter was there," she said.

Lujan admits she and the clerk exchanged some brief words inside, but says she thought the matter was finished.

The company has not commented on whether the clerk is still employed.
