Yvonne Williams was sentenced to five years in prison on Monday, after she and two other women were apprehended during an attempt to steal $800 in hair weaves from a beauty supply store in Montgomery County, Md., last September. Prosecutors allege Williams used her baby as part of the attack, according to NBC News 4.
The entire robbery attempt, which was captured by the store’s security video camera, depicted Williams and two accomplices ransacking the store. Williams is seen attacking the owner and forcefully trying to grab her cell phone.
As the two other women flee the store, 19-year-old Williams tries to ward off the 60-plus-year-old store owner by positioning her baby stroller — with the baby still in it — in front of her. During the fracas, the infant is seen flying out the carriage and landing on the ground hitting her head.
Despite her child’s fall, Williams continues to battle the store owner, throwing punches and striking her with her own shoe and kicking her.
Even though Williams is twice the size of the store owner, the petite clerk continued to fight her off. The battle, which then spilled on to the sidewalk outside of the store, eventually fizzles out.
Watch the unfortunate incident here:
The unidentified store owner, who has three beauty supply outlets, is reportedly thinking about closing two of them.
Meanwhile, a second accomplice has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct. The third suspect has not been identified.
