The assault happened last Sunday outside a Stater Bros. store.
CBS Local reported:
A 79-year-old man was attacked when he accidentally bumped into a car in a grocery store parking lot in Apple Valley.
The incident happened Sunday at a Stater Bros. on Bear Valley Road.
According to sheriff’s officials, Alfred McOsker was unloading his groceries into his car when his leg touched a newer Hyundai parked next to him.
The car’s owner accused McOsker of scratching his vehicle and then punched the older man repeatedly in the face.
The victim’s daughter, Alison Rennie, said the suspect caused her father to fall and hit his head.
“His face is pretty scratched up and his pride is pretty marred, as well. He ended up with two black eyes and he lost a tooth,” she said.
Store employee Cris Zulueta was the person who called 911.
The Daily Press has more on the attackers:
Mcosker described the suspect as a white man about 6 feet tall, weighing 200 pounds with dark hair and a goatee. He was wearing a gray baseball cap and gray shirt and had another man with him. After hitting Mcosker, he left in a light-gray Hyundai sedan.
