Woman beats deputy with her own baton after being asked to wear face mask

Police are hunting a woman who viciously assaulted a sheriff’s deputy at a gas station after she was asked to wear a face mask.

Footage shows the moment the deputy was battered with her “own baton” during the altercation in St Louis City, Missouri, on Christmas Day.

The assaulted sheriff’s deputy was working as security at the Shell Gas Station on North Tucker Boulevard when the suspect entered the business without wearing a face mask.

But according to Breaking911, the unnamed sheriff’s deputy said the suspect became aggressive when she was told she could not enter the business without a covering.

The female suspect pushed the officer as she left the store before starting to punch the victim with her fist.

However, things took a turn for the worst when the suspect took the deputy’s baton and then struck her multiple times, causing a concussion.

The suspect then entered a red vehicle, while the dazed guard stood up and walked over the vehicle.

The guard began to hit the suspect with her baton before she closed the door to her car and fled the scene.

It is unclear if the injured sheriff’s deputy was taken to hospital or suffered further injuries from the attack.

“Investigations into the incident are still ongoing”.
