SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A Texarkana, Arkansas woman is accused of attacking a Walmart employee with a box-cutter and biting another employee on the shoulder, after allegedly trying to leave the store without paying for merchandise on Christmas Eve.

On top of that, police say the woman's 13-year-old nephew and 12-year-old niece were involved. They, too, are facing charges.

Police say officers were called to the store in the 4000 block of New Boston Rd. in Texarkana, TX at around 2:15 p.m. on December 24, where they say 22-year-old Quentella Brown allegedly pulled the box-cutter and began swinging it at a loss-prevention employee who had confronted her about the unpaid merchandise.

The employee, identified as Austin Morris, was cut in the chest. Police say Brown was eventually taken into custody, but not before biting another employee on the shoulder. Both employees were treated for their injuries at the scene.

Brown was booked into the Bi-State Justice Center on the charge of aggravated robbery. Bond was set at $50,000.

The children were also taken into custody, charged with aggravated robbery and taken to the local juvenile detention center.
