NEW YORK CITY, NY – A teen suspected to be aged between 14 and 16-years-old reportedly punched a 39-year-old woman in late October, after police say the woman had told the teen to put on a mask while outside.

This very incident serves as a peak example of sometimes it is just best for one to mind their business instead of trying to be the mask police.

The incident occurred on October 8th at approximately 11:00 a.m. as the 39-year-old woman was walking down Fulton Street in the Ocean Hill neighborhood in the Brooklyn borough. Police say that the woman had asked the teen girl to put on a mask, which authorities say led to a “verbal dispute.”

Said dispute apparently turned physical, with the teenage suspect having clocked the woman asking her to mask-up, resulting in the 39-year-old woman appearing to grab her face where she was struck and bending down before walking away.

Police say that the 39-year-old woman, who was not identified by authorities, declined any medical attention following the incident. The suspect, who was caught on surveillance video delivering the punch, was last seen wearing a multi-color jacket, white sneakers and toting around a multicolored book bag.

Obviously, hitting someone in the mouth is not going to always be the smartest (or legal, for that matter) response to someone telling you to put on a mask while walking outside. However, it’s equally not a bright idea to approach people you don’t know outside and start telling them to put a mask on – as there is a swelling population of people sick and tired of the mask nonsense.
