Video shows 2 men allegedly assaulting Target security guard over face mask rule

Two men were arrested after surveillance video caught them assaulting security guards when they were asked to wear masks at a Target store in California. May 1 at the Target store Van Nuys, in the 5700 block of Sepulveda Boulevard, said Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Security cameras captured the moment three security guards escorted two men out of the store for refusing to wear a face covering.

"As they approached the exit, one suspect, suddenly without provocation, turned and punched a store employee causing him and the suspect to fall to the floor", according to an LAPD statement.

The incident came about two weeks after Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti issued an emergency order requiring all customers to wear masks in grocery stores and other essential businesses.

One employee was treated at a hospital for a broken arm. "While on the ground, the store employee broke his left arm".

The fight broke out on May 1 around 10:20 a.m. after Phillip Hamilton, 31, and Paul Hamilton, 29, were confronted about not wearing masks and refused to comply with the rule, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Surveillance video showed the other man then attack two other Target workers.

The two suspects, described as local transients, were located and arrested over the weekend, LAPD said. In a statement to CBS2, Target said the "safety and security of our guests and team members is our top priority", adding that the company was "grateful for the support of local police" and would "provide any information that can be helpful to their investigation".
