HARTLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Wal-Mart say 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.
Wal-Mart 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 Wal-Mart for violating company policy.
He earlier told WXYZ-TV that he wasn't sure if he would take back his job if offered.
