A KFC employee was fired on Sunday after the employee allegedly attacked a customer in an incident captured on video by a customer, KTUU-TV reported

The incident, which took place in Anchorage, Alaska, was captured and posted on social media late Sunday night. 

The video shows an older man, who was on the ground, standing up and walking away from another man. As the older man walked away, the other person punched him from behind. 

"You have a hard time hearing?" the man dressed in black said seconds before punching the older man. 

KTUU reported that the employee was cleaning the store when he got into an argument with the customer. 

"The actions of the employee in this video are unacceptable and he was terminated immediately following the incident," Yum Brands, parent company of KFC, said in a statement. 

KTUU reported that there have been no charges filed as no one has reported the incident to law enforcement.
