(Scroll down for video) An elderly man was severely beaten after a fight broke out over a dryer at a laundromat, according to video uploaded to the Internet.

Police in Florida said that a Fort Myers man is accused of assaulting a 75-year-old because he took his dryer.

Kenneth Wood, 55, was seen on video pushing Alexandros Dimitrelos to the ground, stomped on him and smashed his cell phone. Police said he did it all because the man began using Wood’s dryer.

According to the police report, Dimitrelos began putting his clothes into the dryer when Wood said it was his.

Dimitrelos said that Wood’s clothes were still being washed, and Wood asked if he was the owner. Wood became violent after Dimitrelos called him an “idiot”.

A surveillance video helped police identify Wood. He was charged with felony assault on a person 65 years or older.
