HOUSTON – On her 25th birthday, Asia Joseph looks over several fashionable outfits with her mother Angela at home in her bedroom.

But it’s what happened Monday afternoon, on the Fourth of July, inside this fashionable clothing store Rue 21 in southeast Houston that has left Asia and her mother reeling.

”It’s my daughter and somebody has her in a chokehold. We already know what happens when you have somebody in a chokehold. I’m a registered nurse myself and I know what happens when you’re choking somebody. They can’t breathe,” said Angela Louison, Asia’s mother.

In a video captured on a cellphone by another shopper at the Rue 21 clothing store on Almeda Genoa Road in southeast Houston, it shows a male employee at the store holding Asia in a headlock on the Fourth of July after Asia said she and a female worker at the store got into an altercation over how many clothing items Asia had in her hands (the store limit is six). That’s when Asia said a man who worked at the store suddenly grabbed her and put her in a tight chokehold.

“Did you hit this female store clerk first or did she hit you first?” I ask her.

“She hit me first. I didn’t touch her,” Asia said.

Asia said about 30 seconds later, a man who claimed to be a manager grabbed her by the neck and put her in a headlock.

“So, he’s choking me, he’s hurting me, I say again and again on the video. I say again and again, ‘Let me go, let me go, let me go, let me go. Please,’ I say,” Asia said.

“So, he’s choking me, he’s hurting me, I say again and again on the video. I say again and again, ‘Let me go, let me go, let me go, let me go. Please,’ I say,” Asia said.
