Bridges said the incident happened just after 5 p.m. Wednesday.

He said store surveillance video captured the argument and authorities were reviewing it. Bridges said Umphrey fled the scene after the fight, and a lookout bulletin was issued for him, and he was found and arrested later Wednesday night.

The victim received five stitches to her neck after being transported by a passer-by.
