What possible reason could there be to do this?
A man who police say assaulted a grandmother at the Beech Grove Walmart is now under arrest.
It happened Wednesday around 2 p.m. and was shown during a Facebook Live stream.
The video, posted on a page belonging to Phillip Weaver with a comment “This was fun” shows a man sneaking up behind the woman.
He can then be seen pouring a bag of flour over the grandmother’s head as she shrieks. The man can be seen in the video laughing as he runs from the store.
An off-duty IMPD officer working at the Walmart was alerted by staff.
In his report, the woman was crying and told him this happened while she was buying clothes for her grandchildren. The officer says he was then able to identify the suspect as Phillip Weaver.
