BRIDGETON, N.J. (AP) — A customer who allegedly squirted nail polish remover into the eyes of employees at a southern New Jersey nail salon has been charged with aggravated assault and a weapons offense.

Authorities say 29-year-old Hakera Cochran of Bridgeton was upset because one of her nails broke on Friday afternoon, shortly after she had a manicure at the city salon.

Authorities say employees tried to calm the irate woman, but she eventually picked up a bottle of nail polish remover and squirted it in the faces of two employees, striking their eyes.

The two employees were treated at the scene by emergency responders but decided not to go to a hospital for further treatment.
