Bay Minette Police have determined the man who caused a scare in a Walmart parking lot just needed assistance.

On Thursday, Nov. 21, Bay Minette Police were told about a Facebook post describing an scary incident. According to the post, a large white man followed a woman and her daughter all the way to their car through a Walmart parking lot. Once they made it into their vehicle, the man stood outside with his hands on the windows. He had a partner, but they left when the mother brandished a weapon.

Police checked the store's security footage and discovered the whole incident was recorded. From the video, they learned that the man and his partner were actually an elderly couple in need of help jump-starting their car. They had approached several people in the parking lot for assistance.
