Not wearing a face mask while shopping led to punches being thrown at a grocery store in Norfolk County.

Two customers began arguing about one’s failure to wear a mask while at the store on Simcoe Street in Middleton around 8:15 a.m. on Monday. The war of words soon escalated into a physical fight.

OPP offices were called to the store, but the customers had left by the time officers arrived.

Police are now reviewing surveillance footage in an effort to identify the pair involved in the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
