MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC/CNN) -- A new resident to Memphis thought he was recording a flash mob. But it was more violent than that.
The man, who asked us not to identify him, was on his way in to Kroger Saturday night when he saw a large crowd in the parking lot. He thought they may be a part of a flash mob.

"Being new to the city, I don't know where I can and where I can't go," he said. "As I was starting to get my camera open, a guy popped around a car and said 'hey bro' and just started swinging at me. And I tried to put my hands up, another guy started rushing at me. I took off running backwards through the parking lot."
