A suburban shopper says she's the victim of repeated harassment and a violent attack inside a grocery store.

Natalie Morgan Nicolen has been shopping at Kroger on Long Lake Rd. in Troy for years, but says a series of bizarre encounters with an employee left her bruised physically and emotionally.

It allegedly started with prying questions about her love life, then a skin crawling moment on Friday, October 13th.

"I was in the discount food section and felt something hit me on my right side. It was so hard I stumbled over," says Natalie.

She says store management has given her the runaround, but she's also filed a police report since being punched.

We've confirmed police are looking into the matter.

So far, Kroger hasn't made any comments about the incident nor the worker's employment status.
