Female Bus Driver Beaten Up After Asking Passenger To Put Face Mask On Before Aboarding
Darmstadt in Hesse, Germany, reported a female bus driver was beaten up after asking a passenger boarding the vehicle to put a face mask on.
Most of the states now require the residents to wear face masks or coverings while in shops, shopping malls, grocery stores, as well as on local public transportation following the global pandemic of COVID-19.
The only place that does not require to wear face make is in Berlin. Even it is not necessary to wear one, it is “strongly recommended”. It is different when it comes to public transport, everyone requires to wear face masks when taking public transports.
Age between 20 and 30, the woman was part of a group including three men and a child who took the bus at Darmstadt Central Station.
Reported that none in the group was covering their mouths and noses with a face mask.
Challenged by the driver, the group is said to have insulted her and ignored the request to put a mask on.
The suspect then struck the driver several times as she left the bus and the group fled the scene at the end of the journey.
Darmstadt Mayer Jochen Partsch has condemned the incident, he said ”
The people to whom this violence is committed are representative of all of us, and they are doing their job to protect us all.”
“The currently increasing disrespect and violence against security forces, but also against fire departments, rescue and relief services and other employees in the public service must be stopped.” he added.
