Woman Assaulted in New Jersey Staples over Face Mask Speaks from Hospital Bed

(WABC-TV New York) Speaking from her hospital bed, the woman shoved to the ground inside a Staples in New Jersey after she asked another customer to pull up her face mask says she plans on pressing charges.

Margot Kagan says she was using one of the fax machines inside the store in Hackensack Wednesday afternoon when she noticed the woman using the machine next to her was not wearing a face mask.

She says when she asked the other woman to wear her mask — she cursed at her.

“When she started cursing me out I said, ‘well you’re endangering everyone.’ So that’s when she took it upon herself to leave her little cube area and come in mine, but she’s, face-to-face with me, without the mask on properly,” Kagan said.

Kagan recently had a liver transplant and uses a cane as she recovers.

“I held up my cane so she couldn’t go any more forward. I didn’t touch her with it. At some point, she grabbed the cane and threw me and it on the floor,” Kagan said.

Kagan says she broke her knee, which required a steel plate to be put in and has been told by doctors that she won’t be able to put weight on her leg for seven to 10 weeks.

(1010 WINS) No one in the store — customers or Staples staff — immediately came to Kagan’s aid. Kagan was transported to Hackensack University Medical Center with a broken leg.

No arrests have been made.

The suspect is a Black woman, 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-8 and about 160 pounds, police said. Call the Hackensack Police Department with any tips at (201) 646-7777.
