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.
