NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Surveillance video reportedly helped to identify a 65-year-old man accused of punching a female employee in the face during a robbery at the Krispy Kreme in Midtown.

Metro police responded Tuesday afternoon to the business on Elliston Place for a report of an employee being assaulted.

The employee told officers she was working behind the counter, when a man in a hooded sweatshirt walked up and asked for free doughnuts and coffee. When she refused, she said the man suddenly punched her in the face, took three doughnuts from a display case, ate them and then left the store.
