Hit in the face with a jar of queso

January 7th, 2011 by Staff


CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)– Eyewitness news now has the surveillance video of an assault in a Chattanooga Wal-Mart, where a woman was hit in the face with a jar of queso.

“I remember turning the aisle and it felt like my head flipped off my body,” says Robin Brown, victim.

That was actually the force of a jar of queso dip hitting Robin Brown in the face, causing massive injuries.

Due to those injuries, she didn’t want her face shown.

Listen as she explains the extent of the damage.

“My nose is crushed at the bridge, I have several fractures in my nose, the entire left side of my face is fractured,” says Brown.

She says she was in the emergency room for nearly eight hours as doctors rushed to repair her nose and face.

Timothy Keith Jr. was aiming for a Wal-Mart employee, but instead hit Brown in the face.

Her family tried to get help, something she says wasn’t readily available.

“My sister-in-law was screaming for help and for someone to help her, but no one came to help and she was trying to get me somewhere, because I was pouring blood,” says Brown.

Brown says now she has to take pain medicine and antibiotics until her next doctor’s visit.

She says it was bad enough being the unintended target of a senseless argument, but she’s is not sure what’s worse, the pain, or no one’s willingness to help.

“What was disappointing to me was that no one at Wal-Mart would help me,” says Brown. “It seems as if they didn’t care if you were on the ground dying or bleeding to death.”

Brown will be evaluated by doctors next week.

The suspect, Timothy Keith, has not been arrested but his last known address is in Red Bank.
