POLK COUNTY, Fla. — A man accused of “pummeling” a 73-year-old man turned himself in on Tuesday morning, the Winter Haven Police Department said.
Don Walker, 43, turned himself in at the Polk County Jail.
“We are thankful to all of the citizens who called in tips that led us to identify Walker,” said Chief David Brannan.
Winter Haven police said the incident happened on Sunday around 2 p.m. at a Publix on Cypress Gardens Boulevard.
Police said a video showed Walker punching the elderly man on the ground outside the store.
The two exchanged words before Walker decided to confront the elderly man face-to-face.
Walker hit the elderly man once. When the elderly man said he was calling the cops, Walker beat him to the ground, the video showed.
No other details were available.
