MARLBOROUGH – A Marlborough woman faces charges after she allegedly assaulted a customer and employee at Price Chopper on East Main Street.
Amy Infantino, 41, has been charged with disorderly conduct, two counts of assault and battery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and trespassing.
On March 3 at 10:50 p.m., police responded to Price Chopper following the report of an “out of control woman,” according to the statement of facts filed in Marlborough District Court.
An employee told police that Infantino had been hanging around the store for several hours and was “occasionally coming in and bothering customers and staff.” According to court documents, Infantino “had words” with a child, and after that, an employee asked her to leave and she later returned.
During the last time she entered the store, Infantino allegedly confronted a shopper in the checkout area and slapped them in the face. Police said there were noticeable scratches on the victim’s face.
She was then confronted by an employee coming to the victim’s aid. When the employee tried to escort her from the store, Infantino allegedly struck the employee several times in the face and knocked the phone from their hand.
According to court documents, she slipped to the floor and kicked someone in the chest. She reportedly fled as police arrived.
When police arrived, they reported that they saw a woman running from the entrance “flailing her arms aggressively.”
“Ms. Infantino was extremely intoxicated when stopped, and acted aggressively toward officers,” the court documents read.
She was arraigned in Marlborough District Court on March 6. She was released on her own recognizance.
She will return to court on April 26.
