"There are cameras around the courthouse so I'm like how can somebody do this so close to the courthouse with deputies so close by," Pam Radford said.

Officials said the victim was able to drive herself to a hospital and will be OK.

Last week, razor blades were found hidden under the handles of shopping carts at a North Carolina Walmart.

This incident left two people injured at a Walmart in Siler City, which is about 90 minutes from Smithfield.

Officers believe two men caught on surveillance are responsible, but no arrests have been made.
