DAILYKENN.com -- 81-year-old unarmed Douglas Brochet was beaten with a metal shelving pole at a gas station in Lauderhill, Fla.
The attack was captured on video.
Jovaughn Walker, 22, an apparent victim of white privilege, micro-aggressions, trans-generational trauma due to being a descendant of slaves, and a slew of other offenses too numerous to mention, was arrested.
While the victim was transported to a hospital, the suspected was allegedly attacking a clerk at another store.
The violent and bizarre encounter happened in front of Brochet's wife, who was desperately trying to protect him.
Jovaughn Walker, 22, was arrested later in the day. Police said it's unclear why he attacked Brochet.
Jovaughn Walker is accused of randomly attacking two people in Lauderhill.
"He didn't ask for money," Brochet said. "He didn't ask for anything."
Brochet said Walker attempted to take off in his car, but Brochet had the keys with him.
As Brochet was rushed to a hospital, Walker was attacking another store clerk at the nearby Swap Shop, police said.
Police said Walker grabbed a 3-foot Samurai sword from a store display and "without provocation or any words" began chasing the employee through the flea market with it. Police said Walker swung the sword at the employee, striking the victim at least eight times.
According to the report, Walker "began making statements about seeing (a) poltergeist and wanting to kill all that was evil."
Both victims are expected to be OK. Brochet said he wants Walker to get help.
"I hope they take care of him," Brochet said.
