Two Moms Had a Screaming Fight at the W. 117th Street Aldi Monday While Their Kids Cried

Between new clothes, an endless list of classroom supplies, a dramatic shift in day-to-day scheduling and figuring out how to find time to make lunch for the next day, back to school season can be extremely stressful. Apparently, a group of moms hit their boiling point Monday at the Aldi location on West 117th Street when a fight broke out.

An anonymous source, who witnessed the event, told Scene that the women involved appeared to be "stereotypical soccer moms," and broke out into a "literal brawl." Children and their fighting mothers were reportedly crying alike, and multiple squad cars were called to diffuse the situation.

We obtained the police report that states a 22-year-old Caucasian woman was screaming that she was assaulted by a 38-year-old Caucasian woman at the Aldi while buying groceries. Both of the women were reported to be very thin, giving the battle a Shakespearean tone of "though she be but little, she is fierce."

The police report indicates that no one was actually assaulted, meaning the women's gigantic display of screaming and crying was seemingly over nothing, or that the 22-year-old severely overreacted to whatever did happen. The three officers on scene and Aldi employees alike told the 22-year-old woman to never return to the store again.
