An Oklahoma City woman was arrested Saturday following a fight in a Penn Square Mall store.

Ronnetta Baker, 32, was arrested on a complaint of assault and battery after fighting with Estelle Duarte, 24, who also was cited for assault and battery, according to police.

Duarte told police she was shopping in the store when Baker approached her and asked whether she worked there. Duarte answered that she did not, and Baker got angry and began calling her names, Duarte told police.

A witness said Baker then hit Duarte with a closed fist, and the women began to fight in the middle of the store, police reported.

They then fell into a shoe rack, according to a police report, where Baker grabbed two high-heeled shoes and began hitting Duarte in the head. The women fought until security arrived.

Duarte ended up with a two-inch cut on her head that required stitches.

Baker denied hitting Duarte with the shoes and said Duarte hit her first.

Baker was taken to Oklahoma County jail; she was released Monday. Duarte was not taken into custody.
