CHARLOTTE, NC. (THECOUNT) — Susan Jane Westwood, the woman at the center of a viral video that showed her confronting a pair of African-American women, has now gone missing, according to local reports.
Westwood, 51, of Charlotte, who was issued a criminal summons last week and fired from her job after a video depicting her arguing with a pair of black women, is now missing and police are asking anyone with information regarding her whereabouts to call 911.
The summons accused Westwood of communicating threats and simple assault. Police have since charged her with misusing 911, but they cannot find her to serve the warrant.
Two sisters, Leisa and Mary Garris, were waiting outside of their Charlotte apartment for AAA to jump their car when Westwood approached them on Friday, Oct. 19. After Westwood approached the Garris sisters, you can hear her say, “This is Myers Park, SouthPark, b****. Why are you up in here hanging out?” Westwood is then heard saying, “Hi, how are you? ” One of the Garris sisters is heard saying, “I don’t know, but you’re harassing me.” source
Westwood had since been fired from her job at Charter Communications.
An official from Charter sent a statement regarding the woman’s employment status, following the published video.
“The incident recorded in Charlotte is a blatant violation of Charter’s code of conduct and clearly disregards the company’s commitment to inclusion and respectful behavior. As such, Ms. Westwood’s employment with the company has been terminated, effective immediately.”
The Garris sisters told reporter Stephanie Tinoco they are pursuing legal action for the threats that were made last Friday night.
Anyone with information on Westwood’s disappearance should contact police at 911 immediately.
