Remarks: Things took a serious turn in a #Sydney, Woolworths1)https://twitter.com/newscomauHQ/status/1236123555114307585 today, all over a trolley full of toilet paper. The coronavirus panic buying has reached a new low with three women at a western Sydney supermarket throwing punches over toilet paper.
A fight has broken out at a Woolworths store in Sydney after a shopper tried to hoard multiple packets of toilet paper.
The altercation took place Saturday morning at the Chullora Woolworths in western Sydney, police confirmed to Yahoo News Australia.
Multiple videos of the fight were posted to social media this morning, showing a mother and daughter fighting a third woman who wanted a pack of toilet paper.
Despite Woolworths putting a limit of four packs per shop, the mother and daughter had filled their trolley to the brim with toilet paper.
In the footage, the three women can be seen throwing punches and pulling hair while crashing into the shelves in the supermarket aisle amid loud screams.
Onlookers can be heard yelling and screaming with one person shouting “that’s enough!”.

“Are you f***ing joking?” the woman screams at the mother. “I just want one.”
After the fight was broken up, a Woolworths worker can be heard telling the shopper that it is unfair for her to try and buy all the toilet paper.
“Think about what you’re doing, it’s unfair. You need to stop,” the worker says. “There is a limit and there are other people.”
As the women are separated, the store manager can be seen calling the police.
“I need everyone to back off right now,” he says. “You need to get off this trolley now.”
One video online appears to be taken by someone familiar with staff at the store, who implores the manager to call the police.
Calls to the Chullora Woolworths have gone unanswered.
Police confirmed to Yahoo News Australia that officers were called out to the Woolworths shortly after 7am this morning.
“Officers from Bankstown Area Command attended a Chulorra supermarket after reports a 49-year-old woman had been assaulted,” a police spokesperson said.
“No arrests have been made.” Source of Article: au.news.yahoo.com
