Due to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, cities throughout California and the country have asked citizens to wear masks when outside the home, specifically in places such as stores where they may come in contact with others.

Recently, a Van Nuys security guard was injured by two men who were not wearing masks inside the local Target. According to ABC 7 News, several security guards had to escort two men from the store because they refused to wear masks. During this attempt to get them to leave the store, the two men turned around “and started hitting one of the guards.” As a result of the altercation, the guard suffered a broken arm.
