ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) – Police have released surveillance video of a man suspected of punching a clerk in St. Petersburg after they got into an argument at a grocery store last month.

The alleged assault took place on July 12 at a store in the 3000 block of 22nd Avenue South.

Police said the man in question, who was wearing a white shirt, got into a verbal argument with one of the clerks at the store.
