The man said he didn’t want to file any charges.
The other man told the officer the incident occurred the other way around and that it was the other man who approached and hit him in the face.
He said after he left the store, he was attacked by the man’s family members but that he didn’t want to report the crime.
The case was cleared due to lack of cooperation.
