Police mull charges in Walmart pepper spray case

Los Angeles police are still deciding whether to pursue charges against a woman who allegedly used pepper spray while shopping at a Walmart Thanksgiving night in Porter Ranch, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.

"We have a ton of witnesses and victims to interview," Los Angeles Police Officer Bruce Borihanh told the newspaper. "We know who she is."

The woman turned herself in Friday night after the incident allegedly caused minor injuries to 20 shoppers, including children.  She was released pending further investigation after she refused to discuss the incident, police said Saturday.

The woman's identity was not released. 

The alleged attack took place about 10:20 p.m. Thursday, shortly after doors opened for shopping. Employees brought out a crate of discounted Xbox video game players, and a crowd formed to wait for the unwrapping. Valle said the woman began spraying people in order to get an advantage.

Wal-Mart officials called it "an unfortunate situation."
