Police say woman attacked, robbed in CVS parking lot on Easter – WSOC TV

CHARLOTTE – A 62-year-old woman was injured after being attacked and robbed in a CVS parking lot south of Charlotte shortly after noon on Easter, police said.

A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police report said the incident happened at the Providence Road store.

The victim told Channel 9’s Erika Jackson that was the last place she expected it to happen, especially during the day.

Mila Kalashnik told officers the person stole everything, including her SUV, purse, purse, phone and six Easter baskets.

“I heard stories, but I never realized it could happen to me,” says Kalashnik.

Kalashnik was taken to a local hospital for injuries caused by the attack. She was left with bruises, concussions and pins in her head.

“I don’t think next time I will go somewhere alone. It was just so scary,” she said.

Kalashnik said she was packing Easter baskets for her grandchildren in her car when she said a man in his 20s or early 30s walked up to her.

“He doesn’t look like an attacker. He was calm and confident, and he looked like he was doing his job,” she said. “He pushed me to the ground and I was still resisting, holding my car keys so he turned around and grabbed it. With my car keys in hand, I said, ‘Oh no, stop. Help, help,’ and I started screaming but no one heard me. “

She found the strength then to run into the store for help.

The discharged Kalashnik is recuperating at home, but may require surgery.

“I think I’m still in shock,” she said.

She hopes the news of her tragedy comes as a warning to others.

“I want… people who live in Charlotte to be aware that it can happen when you least expect it,” she said.

Kalashnik said she did not know her attacker. No arrests have been made at this time.

She said police tracked her phone more than 30 miles away in Gastonia. Her SUV and the rest of her belongings are still missing. Her vehicle is a silver Toyota 4 Runner with front-end damage due to a previous collision.

A CVS representative said the pharmacy is cooperating with investigators.
