Another coughing Karen is on the loose, this time in California.
The San Jose Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the assault suspect shown in the video below.
The woman appears to purposely cough on a 1-year-old child at a yogurt shop.
The surveillance video of the alleged incident at a Yogurtland in San Jose shows the woman walk over to a stroller and cough at least two times over the young child around 5:25 p.m. on June 12th.
From The New York Post:
“The preliminary investigation revealed the suspect was upset the female was not maintaining proper social distancing, so the suspect removed her face mask, got close to the baby’s face, and coughed 2-3 times,” said San Jose police Sgt. Enrique Garcia.
Garcia added the suspect left the establishment and hasn’t been identified or apprehended by authorities as of Monday night.
“Coughing on someone’s face. She did it on purpose it’s not like she did it on accident, oh cough, cough – no she purposely coughed on my son’s face,” Mireya Mora, the boy’s mother told San Francisco’s KGO-TV. “It happened so quick I was in shock. She got close, she took off her mask, and she coughed three times super hard on my son’s face.”
Moran claims the woman started harassing the family after she started speaking Spanish.
Here’s the surveillance video from Yogurtland security cameras.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact Detective Dan Bowman of the San Jose Police Department’s Assaults Unit at 408-277-4161. Tipsters who contact the Crime Stoppers Tip Line, at (408) 947-7867 may be eligible for a cash reward.
