Police seek California woman who coughed on 1-year-old in yogurt shop line

    CALIFORNIA -- Police in San Jose are seeking help from the public to identify the woman caught on camera coughing on a 1-year-old in a Yogurtland earlier this month.

    According to the San Jose Police Department, the assault suspect was wearing a mask while waiting in line around 5:25 p.m. on June 12 at a Yogurtland store when she became upset that a woman with a baby in a stroller was not maintaining social distancing. Investigators say when the suspect became upset, she removed her mask and coughed two to three times on the baby’s face.

“It happened so quick I was in shock,” said Mireya Mora, the baby’s mother, KGO reported. “She got close, she took off her mask, and she coughed three times super hard on my son’s face.”

Mora, who is Hispanic, says she suspects racism because the woman only became upset when she began speaking Spanish to her grandmother, KGO reported.

Mora said the woman had initially complained to a store employee, who confirmed that her family had been following social-distancing rules, The Washington Post reported.

The suspect is described as a white female in her 60s, medium build, wearing a gray bandana, glasses, long sleeve shirt with gray vertical lines, white dress pants and patterned tennis shoes. She faces a potential assault charge.
No. No.
