Police: Man punched Wal-Mart greeter, 72

NORTH VERSAILLES, PA Surveillance video shows the employee, Thomas Jenkins, walking near the entrance to the Wal-Mart in North Versailles on Tuesday night. A man comes around the corner, punches Jenkins in the face and Jenkins falls to the ground.

North Versailles Police Sgt. Vince DiCenzo says the attack appears unprovoked.

Fifty-five-year-old Paul Washington, of North Versailles, was arrested and charged with assault, public drunkenness and other counts. It is not clear if he has an attorney.

DiCenzo says Washington denies hitting Jenkins, despite the video footage.

Jenkins is being treated in a hospital for broken facial bones.
