A woman naked from the waist down stole two boxes of wine from a Publix in Ocala, then fought with the manager trying to get away, according to police.

The robbery happened around 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Publix at 5400 Southwest College Road.

According to police, the woman, who was only wearing a black shirt and slippers, walked into the store and grabbed some wine near the deli.  She then walked to the exit but was confronted by a manager, police said.

The woman, who was listening to music via a tablet she was carrying, began flailing and left the store with the wine, police said.

She was described by police as a black woman in her 30s and about 5 feet 4 inches tall.  She also has a tattoo on her neck.

The wine was valued at $41.68.
