Face masks, or rather the lack of them, became the source of another flashpoint inside a store.
This time, it was a Wawa in New Jersey, where a mask-less woman is accused of slapping a Wawa employee in the face after being asked to leave the store, as WFMZ 69 News reports:
Suspect Ashanty Niang, 23, of New York, is charged with violating executive order, simple assault, and disorderly conduct, a Hackettstown Police Department news release states, adding:
Police said they responded to the Wawa for a report on a disorderly female who assaulted an employee shortly after midnight on Oct. 3.
Police say Niang was not wearing a face covering when she was inside the store. The employee asked her to cover her face, which she did with her jacket. Ashanty then took her jacket down, which was uncovering her mouth, police said.
Ashanty allegedly slapped the employee in the face after the employee asked her to leave the store, police said.
