“My left upper lip was broken from here, blood started out, and inside also there was a cut about half an inch.”

Investigators said 42-year-old Craig Valentine is the person seen in the video assaulting Randhawa. The Walmart greeter said that when he checked Valentine’s receipt he noticed that a case of Gatorade had not been paid for. He said:

“I told him if you want, you can scan and take it.”

Randhawa said he was only doing his job. He had to make sure all items on his receipt had been paid for. Sometimes, he said, cashiers may forget to scan an item, but in his 15 years at Walmart, he never encountered anything as horrible as this. However, Valentine got angry, yelling out he had paid for everything. He then pushes the 72-year-old and punches him.

Randhawa continues to put ice packs on his face and shoulder but said he will never be the same physically.
