A woman is accused of not only hitting but threatening her 97-year-old grandmother at an Aldi’s supermarket in Vernon last week.

While Kirsten Laundry, of Massachusetts, said she didn’t hit her grandma and didn’t yell at her, police said that’s exactly what happened and they are thankful that grocery store employees called 9-1-1 right away.

The 9-1-1 calls were released to Eyewitness News, where employees are heard calling about a woman hitting an elderly woman in the store.

Laundry was with her grandma at the store, but exclusively told Eyewitness News that she would never hurt her grandma.

"I was like ‘listen Grandma, you're going to get in trouble if you touch anything here’ and then someone called the police because I told her I'd call the police on her,” Laundry said.

She says she loves her grandmother, but now due to a protective order she’s not allowed to see her.

“I'm wicked upset. She's 97 years old. I mean how long is she going to live...maybe a year or two,” Laundry said.

The victim was not injured.

Laundry, who has a lengthy criminal history, will be back in court on June 2.
