WATCH: Woman abuses Kmart staff asking to inspect her trolley
A woman in a NSW Kmart has been captured on video launching an aggressive rant at an employee who asked to check her trolley.
A witness recorded the woman swearing at the worker at the Newcastle store and ramming her trolley into him at the security gates in front of Christmas shoppers.
The mobile phone footage, recorded Friday evening, catches the woman yelling to the security worker “this is my s***.”
When the employee takes hold of the trolley from the woman who is trying to exit the store, the woman yells at him: “Don't f***ing touch it.”
She appears to yank the trolley away from the worker, telling him: “Let it go you f***ing dog.”
“Don't touch my f***ing trolley.”
The man who filmed the scene told the Daily Mail about 100 people, including children and his grandmother, were stunned to watch the woman abusing the staff member.
NSW Police confirmed a 35-year-old woman was issued with a "move on direction" after an incident at a Waratah shopping centre retail store on Friday.
"About 8.30pm, the woman became aggressive when she was spoken to by an employee," the police told Yahoo7 in a statement.
