Twanna Brown apparently thought the man standing in line behind her was a tad too close, so she produced a knife.
The unnamed victim said the attacker's hand came within an inch of his face.
Charlack Police Chief Steve Runge said he believed the attack was not racially motivated. "...he happened to be white," he said regarding the cracker.

A man said a woman with a knife attacked him and yelled racial slurs at a convenience store in Charlack.
Twanna Brown is facing armed criminal action charges. Police said Brown yelled racial slurs and death threats at a man at a 711 on St. Charles Rock Road.
“The customer behind her got too close in her words and she whipped out a knife and attempted to stab the guy. She told him she ‘kills crackers all the time,” said Charlack Police Chief Steve Runge.
The victim, who did not want to share his name, said Brown's actions were unprovoked as he stood behind her in line.
“Her finger came within an inch of my face the first time. Then she went to go reach again and the clerk behind the counter was trying to tell me she had a knife,” the victim said.
The victim said Brown pulled the knife but he said he never saw the blade. He also said he wonders if hate crime charges will be filed.
Runge does not believe the attack was racially motivated.
“She just lost it. She went off on this customer and he happened to be white. I think she lost control of her emotions but I don't think it was racially motivated,” Runge said.
Prosecutors will have to determine if a hate crime was committed.
