(WHAS11) -- A scary situation for shoppers at a North Carolina Wal-Mart store.

Police say it started when a man dove into a bin filled with DVDs but just seconds later surveillance video shows him hitting a 72-year-old man in the face.

The victim suffered a cut on the face from his glasses.

Police were able to get Diogenes Gabriel Morales in custody, but not before they tased him.

Morales is a student at Appalachian State University where he majors in criminal justice.

He's charged with assault and resisting arrest. Investigators say the two men do not know each other, and they don't know a motive for the attack.
