Customers of a Kingston grocery store attacked a man who was coughing and spitting products amid the coronavirus pandemic, video shows.
“A guy from Stop and Shop in Kingston was coughing and spitting on products, it didn’t last long,” wrote Kyle Mann, who posted to Facebook, showing at least three men fighting creep.
“He fought an employee and good customers shot him until the cops arrived.”
Kingston police said a 65-year-old Duxbury man “coughed and spit” at the store around noon on Saturday, and then started fighting with staff and other customers.
The man was taken to hospital for assessment, although police said there was no reason to believe he had COVID-19.
He could be charged with assault with a shoe, assault and battery, and destruction of property, police said.
