LONGVIEW, Wash. (KCPQ) -- A maskless woman at a grocery store in Washington state was captured on video ordering others away from an aisle until she was done shopping, calling one person a “demon” while invoking the name of Jesus Christ.

The incident happened July 21 at a Fred Meyer grocery store in Longview. Tara Lee Holcomb recorded the video in which the woman can be heard berating a worker and other shoppers.

“I command you in Jesus Christ’s name to get off this aisle,” the woman yells while pacing up and down the vitamin aisle. “I’m buying something! Have respect.”

At one point, the woman comes face to face with a shopper and calls them a “demon.” She continues to cast everyone away until she can buy something. “And then I will happily leave,” the woman exclaims.

Washington state ordered businesses to require and enforce the use of face coverings by all customers and clients amid the coronavirus pandemic, which went into effect on July 7.

Holcomb shared a follow-up video on Twitter, which appeared to show the woman being held down by someone at the front of the store. She can be heard crying out and yelling, “Let go of me.”
