Man Wearing Only Mask and Underwear Attacks Elderly Walmart Workers

Video has emerged showing a man in his underwear and a black face covering attacking two elderly employees at a Walmart in Louisiana.

The clip shows the suspect, identified as 30-year-old Kendrick Zenon, walking through the store in Breaux Bridge wearing just a pair of red boxer shorts and a full black mask.

Zenon appears to be being moved on out of the store by Walmart employees while being filmed by shocked onlookers.

The suspect then lashes out and strikes an elderly worker in the face. The victim, a 72-year-old man, falls to the ground after being punched by Zenon.

While the footage is obscured, Zenon then also attacks a second worker, a 68-year-old male, while others try to drag him away.

According to a police report obtained by KLFY, Zenon then started stripping to his "birthday suit" before fleeing the store.

Police Chief Rollie Cantu said the suspect was apprehended a short while later. An order of protective custody was ordered while he undergoes an evaluation at a local hospital for evaluation.

After he has been discharged from hospital, an arrest warrant will be issued for Zenon for charges of including battery of the infirm and obscenity.

None of the victims were seriously injured during the incident, Cantu said.

Newsweek has contacted Walmart for comment.

Last month, an incident at a Walmart in Minnesota attracted nationwide outrage after two people were seen wearing Nazi flags on their faces in protest at the store's mask policy.

It was later revealed that couple were cited by the police for trespassing and banned from Walmart for at least a year

"What happened at our store in Marshall, MN is unacceptable," a spokesperson told Newsweek.

"We strive to provide a safe and comfortable shopping environment for all our customers and will not tolerate any form of discrimination or harassment in any aspect of our business."

Marshall Mayor Bob Byrnes also condemned the incident. "The incident that played out on Saturday was just a small snapshot and is not reflective of the entire picture of Marshall," he said.

"We were surprised it unfolded at all anywhere in Minnesota. It's unfortunate that it happened in our community."

The incident occurred as Walmart confirmed that they would be requiring all shoppers to wear a face covering inside their stores from July 20 to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

"While we're certainly not the first business to require face coverings, we know this is a simple step everyone can take for their safety and the safety of others in our facilities," Walmart said in a statement.

"According to the CDC, face coverings help decrease the spread of COVID-19, and because the virus can be spread by people who don't have symptoms and don't know they are infected, it's critically important for everyone to wear a face covering in public and social distance."
