UTICA, Mich. (WDIV/NBC News) — Police in Utica, Michigan are working to identify a man who assaulted two restaurant workers after being asked to wear a mask.
The assault took place inside Black Rock Bar & Grill on July 10.
Investigators said a group of nine people came into the restaurant that night and ignored all the coronavirus protocols that it has in place.
The group headed to the bar, four of them didn’t have masks on and did not socially distance themselves. When they were told they could not be at the bar and asked to return to the lobby and put masks on, most complied.
One member of the group didn’t comply and instead, became belligerent and hurled expletives at the female staff members.
