(March 24, 2014)-  Cape Coral Police have made an arrest in a violent confrontation that occurred at the Lowe's located at 165 NE Pine Island Road on March 20, 2014.

On March 20th, officers responded to Lowe's located at 165 NE Pine Island Road in reference to a disturbance in progress.  By the time officers arrived, the disturbance had ended.  Officers learned that a verbal confrontation over cutting in line at a loading area near the garden center turned violent.  During the confrontation, one customer verbally assaulted another, cursing at them.  Things escalated when the irate customer (suspect) jumped into the bed of the other's (victim) pickup truck and began throwing bags of mulch out of the bed that had been loaded in for purchase.  The suspect further escalated things when she slapped and kicked the victim.

Witnesses provided not only written statements to officers, but clear cellphone video which enabled officers to make a positive identification of the suspect, Autumn Kristina Glick, W/F, DOB: 12-08-1981, of 1121 NE 11th St., Cape Coral, and her vehicle, which matched the description of the suspect vehicle that left prior to officers arriving.  Officers went to the suspect's residence and made contact with Glick through a window at the home.  Glick, refused to come out of the house because "If I do, I'll be going in the back of your car."  Glick also told officers that she had no one to care for her children until her husband returned home.
