A woman hit a child with her purse before assaulting a store employee in a pair of seemingly random attacks in Russell, Man., last week, police say.
Russell RCMP were called to reports of an assault at a business on Main Street around 6:45 p.m. Thursday.
They say a woman working at the store locked herself in a backroom and called police after being assaulted by a woman who appeared to be intoxicated.
The suspect was arrested, but police say she became combative, spitting at officers and kicking the windows of a police car while they drove to the detachment.
