The policewoman was only doing her job that day when she asked a customer of a store near a gas station in Saint-Louis (Missouri, United States) to wear her mask. Indeed, like everywhere in the world, the coronavirus epidemic is experiencing an upsurge in the United States and health rules are at the heart of the fight.
But now, this woman categorically refused to submit to this rule. Worse, she entered the facility without a mask and physically attacked the 59-year-old policewoman on her way out. “The victim said that the suspect pushed her out of the store and then started punching her,” said the authorities while specifying that the attacker used the police baton, as the shows a video taken by a passer-by and posted on social media.
An investigation has been opened and the woman is being actively sought.
