Covington Police are looking for two persons of interest after a man was assaulted inside a Walmart.

The incident happened Friday at the store on Industrial Boulevard.

Norris Cook told FOX 5 he was grabbing sugar from a shelf when a stranger asked him about ingredients. At that point, Cook said, out of nowhere, the man punched him and then reached for his wallet.

"He came around and hit me. My whole body went numb and I went to my knees," Cook said.

Cook added his attacker and another man then left the store.

Covington Police Captain Ken Malcolm said the department is investigating the unusual case. Officers believe the duo left the store in a blue Chrysler 300.
