GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Police are looking for a customer they said attacked a store employee because she was upset over the price of a weave. :p

Surveillance video showed the customer going on the attack, throwing merchandise and punches in the Duluth store.

Venus beauty supply workers said the Wednesday night confrontation began after customer Melissa Roper and her daughter didn't like the price of a weave, and the lack of customer service they apparently wanted.

Roper threw the product at the employee, then the employee threw it right back.

“She threw it at me and said, ‘that's fine, I'm not going to come back here anymore,’” the store owner told Channel 2’s Tony Thomas.

The clerk then followed the mother-daughter duo, and that's when things turned violent. The video showed the customer throwing two punches before walking out.
