LA CRESCENTA, CALIFORNIA: A California man has allegedly been lying in wait outside local schools, following children wearing masks to cough at and spit on them, and harass them for being “stupid” enough to wear the face coverings. In a video that has been captured, the man can be seen video wearing a “Your mask makes you look stupid” T-shirt. Reportedly, he has been harassing kids for a month in suburban La Crescenta. Parents recently gathered at the Crescenta Valley Station to urge police to take action against the man.

“[The kids] were obviously getting scared. He was getting three to five inches away and coughing in their faces,” Ned, a parent who witnessed the harassment, told CBS Los Angeles. Part of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the Crescenta Valley Station said that a “thorough investigation” is underway into the man after an incident was caught on camera.

“Crescenta Valley Station is aware of a video circulating on social media regarding a dispute between an anti-mask adult and others over the masking of children. The incident appears to have occurred off school grounds sometime last week,” police said. The video shows the man humiliating a group of kids, shouting, "Stay scared. Keep your masks on that don’t even work!” One of the children yells back, “We’re 13!”

When an adult tried to intervene, the anti-masker verbally attacks him too, saying, "Look at this grown man with a mask on. What a fricken coward. What a total p—y… Where’d you buy your mask? The stupid store?” Calling the kids a "bunch of idiots", the man walks away.

The sheriff’s department has said that some of the kids claimed that the man even spit on them. According to reports, the man, who has been publicly identified yet, has been involved in other such incidents in the past. Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Lt. Robert Hahnlein, however, said that they have identified the man and are working with police  in Glendale to investigate the incidents.

Several incidents involving anti-maskers have lately come to the fore. Recently, a teen girl brutally punched a 39-year-old Brooklyn woman when she asked her to "mask up." The incident took place on October 28 near Fulton Street in the Ocean Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn in New York City at around 11 am. According to the authorities, a 39-year-old unidentified woman reportedly told the teenage girl to put on a mask, which led to a verbal dispute that ended with the teen violently punching the woman.
