A man was arrested Monday after deputies say he punched an 80-year-old woman in the back and walked away.
Curtis Brandon Styles, 35, was charged with assault in the third degree after he allegedly walked up to the woman at Food Lion on Hwy 221 and hit her in the back, knocking her to the ground. He then walked away, Spartanburg County Sheriff’s office say.
Deputies say a witness told them that Styles and the woman did not speak to one another before the assault.
After deputies reviewed the video of the incident, they went to arrest him at his home. He was frequent visitor of the grocery store and employees told the deputy he lived behind the store.
He was taken to the Spartanburg County Jail.
