The woman, Teresa Klein, caused anger earlier this week after she called 911 to report an alleged sexual assault by a nine year old.

Teresa Klein, now known as "Cornerstore Caroline" on the internet, loudly accused a 9-year-old boy of grabbing her behind. She reportedly claimed the journalists "were harassing her and threatening her with violence".

"How can you be sexually assaulted by a nine-year-old child who was walking by?"

The woman continues her tirade, telling the dispatcher: 'White lady calls the cops on black lady, I get it. Following the trend of giving these instigators a derisive nickname like BBQ Becky and Permit Patty, a NY woman who accused a Black 9-year-old of touching her butt is being dubbed "Cornerstore Caroline".

Klein who later viewed the CCTV footage inside the corner store surrounded by a jeering crowd of onlookers, offered a brief apology.

Earlier in the day surveillance footage from inside the Sahra Deli Market had discredited Klein's story that the boy groped her.

She says she didn't see the footage until civil rights activist Shaun King posted it to his Instagram. Klein can be heard yelling over the phone.

"That's right, the son grabbed my ass, and [the mother] chose to yell at me", she says on the call.

"When she said, 'He touched me, ' that's when I was like, 'Whoa, no he didn't, '" he added.

A WOMAN dubbed "Cornerstore Caroline" has been shamed after wrongfully accusing a 9-year-old boy of groping her behind in a store.

'There are security cameras outside of this bodega. The boy, who is about 9, and another child burst into tears outside the store as bystanders confronted Ms. Klein about the incident."The son grabbed my ass and she chose to yell at me", Ms. Klein continued in the video, referring to his mother.

She has since returned to the store to review the CCTV footage.

In a video, that went viral and was filmed by neighbor Jason Littlejohn, Klein claimed to be on the phone with a 911 operator and made the boy, his sister and mother emotional.

"You just see her going to the store and back", Littlejohn said of Klein.

'As I walked up I noticed the argument, apparently the kid brushed up against her and she said he touched her and chose to call police on a nine year old child. "You seriously just called the police on a child?" It also appears that Klein simply threatened to call the police but didn't actually do so according to a report from News 12 Brooklyn.
