A suspect is in custody after police said he hit a stranger over the head with a baseball bat at Walmart.
Corey Mosley was arrested after police said they saw surveillance video of the attack at Walmart on Rogers Ave. in Fort Smith.
According to the arrest report, Mosley told officers he recently watched a movie with a baseball bat being used on someone else and wanted to try it. According to police, Mosley also told them the victim was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
“That young lady was there doing what any number of us have done on numerous occasions,” said Sgt. Daniel Grubbs, with Fort Smith police. “There’s no pity for a person who would do something like this.”
Police said it was a random attack. “There’s no patterns, no prior relationships, no prior contacts, which really makes this more disturbing than anything,” said Sgt. Grubbs.
Mosley’s mother and cousin said Mosley has serious mental problems and sometimes believes he is a character in a movie he has seen, police said.
Investigators said the victim was taken to the hospital where she was treated and released. “It’s a miracle the young lady was not very very seriously hurt,” said Sgt. Grubbs.
Mosley was arrested on a charge of battery. He was being held behind bars on a $20,000 bond.
