On August 29th, Christopher Banks made a report with the Memphis Police Department advising that he was assaulted at the Brothers Food Market located at 2157 E. Alcy. Banks advised he was trying to get his ripped $20 bill taped when the clerk, Walid Aldafari, got mad and upset with him. Banks stated when he tried exiting the business, the front door was locked at which time Walid Aldafari pistol-whipped him on the left side of his head causing him to fall on the ground.
Banks went on stating at that time the other store clerk Thuizan Ali known as “T”, jumped over the counter beginning to hit him with his gun in his head.
