Dramatic footage has emerged of a woman fleeing in terror after she was ‘slashed across the face with a pair of scissors’ during a fight in a supermarket in Ireland.

The unnamed woman can be seen with blood on her face, frantically scrambling across the floor of the shop in Dublin,  as her daughter is heard screaming for her mother in the background. 

Food displays were demolished as the frightened woman battled to get away from the alleged attacker, who appears to be holding a pair of scissors.

She eventually managed to get to her feet before throwing a pineapple at the assailant as she tried to escape.

The clip was filmed earlier this month at a Centra convenience store in the Irish capital.

It opens with a woman on her back repeatedly kicking out with her legs as another woman, wearing black, stands over her. A girl then appears, repeatedly screaming for her mother.

A stand full of chocolates goes crashing across the shop floor, before the alleged attacker appears to kick out at her. 

The girl then drags her mother by the arms to bring her to her feet, screaming ‘get out of the shop, get out of the shop’ before the clip ends.

The manager of the store said today: ‘Everything has been handed over to the police.’

The video was uploaded on February 7 – three days after the incident.

Tia Channelle Moore said: ‘What the actual f***? Have these people been arrested?’ 

Marie Power Gallagher said: ‘The poor woman looked petrified thought her life was over sin to god don’t know the story behind it, but it’s wrong to do that, could have fought with her hands.’
