KSAL Staff - April 16, 2015 12:09 pm

Police were called after a disturbance at Wal-Mart.

Officers arrested 36-year-old Elijah Gragg of McPherson on Wednesday afternoon, after he allegedly attacked a store greeter.

Police say 63-year-old Roger Bennett of Salina was working as a greeter on Wednesday at 4:30pm, and noticed Gragg lying inside the store’s entry way in the cart storage area.

Gragg suddenly attacked Bennett and repeatedly hit him in the head with his fists.

Gragg is now facing charges of battery and criminal trespass.

Bennett was treated at Salina Regional Health Center following the incident.

Wish I was there they could of picked up Graggs body. I definitely would have helped the greeter wonder why nobody did.

I see some idiots in the small town of Smolan are blaming this on Walmart and decided they are not going shop there anymore…..well darn! Good! That means less people in line when I check out. So what do you do when you see a wreck on I-135? Stop driving on I-135 altogether? There are some backasswards clowns here in Smolan, Kansas for sure! LOL!!
