The incident occurred Tuesday morning at a Krispy Kreme in Henderson. The victim, who did not wish to be identified, told KTNV that after he asked rowdy customers to leave, a man believed to be with the group was summoned from outside. In the video, the man can be seen blindsiding the victim and landing several blows, while bystanders attempt to intervene. At one point, the man restrains the victim while a woman lands blows on the victim's body.

Police hope that the clear surveillance video image of the suspect will assist in his capture. Krispy Kreme released a statement, expressing relief that its employee will recover and said the company is working with police.
