Wal-Mart shopper pepper sprayed by aggressive grifter

A Cyril man in town to do some shopping found that an aggressive panhandler turned violent and pepper-sprayed him after he'd given her money.

"I just thought people should be aware about this," said Jerry Wass. 

Wass was in Lawton around 11:15 A.M. on Oct. 28 to do his shopping at Wal-Mart, 1002 N. Sheridan, as he has done for years. This trip would be unlike any other he's undertaken to the store that he's patronized for years.

Beginning with his arrival to the store, Wass said a woman who appeared pregnant had approached him outside the store. He said she propositioned him but he turned her down. He said she went to a parked car with a man inside and he went inside.
