Police Searching for Couple Who Punched Teen Sesame Place Worker After He Asked Them to Wear Masks
The injuries the 17-year-old sustained to his jaw and tooth were reportedly serious enough to require surgery. All guests over the age of 2 are required to wear masks in the Langhorne park to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
Police in Pennsylvania are searching for a couple who allegedly punched a teenage employee of Sesame Place in the face after he asked them to wear face masks. The injuries the 17-year-old sustained to his jaw and tooth were serious enough to require surgery, CBS affiliate KYW-TV reported.
Authorities say the employee had previously told the couple to put their masks on. All guests over the age of 2 are required to wear masks in the Langhorne park to help stop the spread of coronavirus, according to its website.
But when the couple saw the teenager again later in the day, they allegedly both struck him in the face, knocking him to the ground, KYW-TV reported. Security guards chased the couple but they were able to leave the park in a car with New York State license plates, KYW-TV reported.
Officers from the Middletown Police Department responded to the park at 5:22 p.m. on Sunday, according to police records, and are reviewing security footage to help identify the suspects.
