Walmart Employee Sentenced To 8 Years For Stabbing Customers On The Clock

Two years ago, a Walmart employee who worked in the automotive department of a store in New Mexico walked up to a customer shopping with his family and threatened to fight him. Witnesses say that he then stabbed him in the chest and arms with a switchblade. Another customer, who authorities say tried to break up the fight, was stabbed under his chin. He was found guilty in May, and this week was sentenced to eight years in prison for the attacks.

The employee returned to his post after the stabbing, and was apprehended by police in the clothing department. He was found guilty on two charges of Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon, and one misdemeanor count of Unlawful Possession of a Switchblade.
