  • The suspect cursed at the grandmother before the attack. 

Police are searching for a woman they say beat a 75-year-old grandmother inside a Wal-Mart early Sunday in northwest Atlanta. 

The woman was shopping inside the store on Howell Mill Road when Sandra McClung accidentally ran into her with her wheelchair, according to a police report.

The woman cursed at McClung to move out of the way, and when the grandmother did, she cursed the woman under her breath, police said. 

That’s when police say the suspect sucker-punched her and beat her in the face until McClung yelled for help. McClung’s nose was “bleeding profusely,” according to the report, and suffered bruises on the upper part.

McClung’s grandson told Channel 2 Action News his grandmother was still shaken from the attack.
