An elderly woman and a young male got into a brawl in a Riegelwood grocery store Sunday, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputy C. Gaskins was called to the Piggly Wiggly on N.C. 87 around 1:19 p.m. to investigate the incident.

Employees reported the 70-year-old woman and a black male estimated in his 20s  got into a disagreement and broke around $30 in glass jars containing food products. The two left the store before law enforcement arrived.
