HARTLAND, Mich- Nearly two weeks after an employee was fired from a Walmart in Metro Detroit, he’s rejecting the retail chain’s offer to get his job back.

You may remember, back on October 13, 30-year-old Kristopher Oswald was on break in the parking lot when he heard a woman screaming for help. Oswald says he went to lend a hand, and was jumped by two people while holding a suspect down. Police eventually came and broke things up, but Oswald lost his job for violating Walmart’s policies regarding employees and violence.

After a national outcry, Oswald was eventually offered his job back, but tonight, he’s saying no.

The Livingston Daily Press reports that Oswald is afraid of retaliation. He also wants Walmart to issue a formal apology, and remove the report about his firing off his personnel record.

So far, Walmart has not responded to Oswald’s rejection.
