Walmart Returns Job To Worker Who Stopped Attack

Posted: Updated:

HARTLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - WalMart said it's offering back a job for a Michigan worker who says he was fired when he tried to help a woman being assaulted in a store parking lot.

WalMart Stores Inc. spokeswoman Brooke Buchanan says messages were left Friday for Kristopher Oswald to "welcome him back" to the Hartland Township store, northwest of Detroit.

The 30-year-old Oswald has said he was attacked by one man and later jumped by two others early Sunday morning after he asked a woman if she needed help when the first man grabbed her.

Livingston County sheriff's deputies arrived and halted the fight.

Oswald later was fired by Bentonville, Ark.-based WalMart for violating company policy.

Buchanan says WalMart later "realized Mr. Oswald's intentions were good."
