A woman is behind bars Tuesday for an alleged attack on a taco stand worker in the Harvard Park neighborhood of South Los Angeles.

India Duerson, 30, was arrested at 4 p.m. Tuesday by Los Angeles Police Department officers on suspicion of robbery, LAPD Officer Luis Garcia told City News Service.

The attack occurred at South Tacos near Normandie and Slauson avenues over the weekend after Duerson allegedly asked for a burrito and then became enraged when the vendor did not prepare it fast enough, according to multiple reports from the scene.

A video obtained by KTLA showed a woman yelling at the vendor, throwing food on the ground, spitting at food items and tipping over juice containers before striking a vendor identified as Bertha Zuniga.

Duerson was being held on $60,000 bail, according to booking records. She was booked at LAPD ‘s 77th Division Station.

Anyone with information about the attack or other street vendor assaults was encouraged to contact the LAPD’s tip line at 1-877-527-3247. Anonymous tips can be called in to Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or submitted online at
