Man Stabbed Over Allegedly Refusing to Wear Face Mask in Santa Monica

SANTA MONICA (CNS) – A man is hospitalized today after what witnesses say was a dispute over the victim not wearing a mask in Santa Monica.

According to witnesses, a security guard confronted the victim over his refusal to wear a mask inside a Vons supermarket on Monday night and an argument quickly escalated.

“There was a tussle” between the security guard and the victim, witness Andre Berryman told ABC7, and ultimately the security guard pulled a out a knife and stabbed the victim, according to Berryman.

The man was taken to a hospital in an unknown condition.
