JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A Bono woman claims she got some unwanted spiritual advice during a recent trip to the store.

The 38-year-old woman told Jonesboro police Tuesday that she was harassed while shopping at Walmart, 1815 E. Highland.

The woman claimed an older white man approached her and began asking her “religious questions.”

The man then touched her wrist and arm, then began poking her shoulder, the initial incident report stated.

She said at one point the suspect’s hand “grazed her right breast.”

The woman told police she was able to walk away and pay for her items then leave the store.

The alleged incident happened sometime between 6:30 and 7 p.m. Friday, April 22.
