JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Judging by the Jonesboro police reports, not everyone is filled with the Christmas spirit.

A holiday shopper reported Saturday that a man walked up to her parked car, opened the door, and yelled at her.

The 45-year-old victim said the incident happened just after 7 p.m. in the parking lot of Walmart, 1815 E. Highland.

She said the man yelled obscenities at her and said she almost hit his wife. He then reportedly threatened to kill her before slamming her door shut.

She described him as being a white man, 40 to 50 years of age, wearing a gray sweatshirt and glasses.

In an unrelated case, a woman who lives in the 5300-block of Deerfield discovered a Grinch of a different sort had dimmed her holiday.

The woman reported that someone cut the power cord to her Christmas light display.

Tonya Jackson said she did not know who could have done this. 

Her son went to turn it on Sunday, but discovered the cut cord. 

She said they plan to put up something else instead of more Christmas lights. 

"I think we're going to try to get a camera up out there," Jackson said. "I guess it would have been good to have some snapshots of whoever was brave enough to come that close to your house. Obviously while you were sleeping, I guess."

Jackson is concerned that someone would be willing to destroy their lights so close to her son's bedroom windows.

She said the vandalism happened sometime between Wednesday and Sunday afternoon.
