According to CNN, a teen working at a Sesame Place in Langhorne, Pennsylvania was punched in the face for enforcing the theme park’s face mask policy.

The 17-year-old employee was “aggressively punched by both a female and a male,” on Sunday, August 9th, 2020, according to Stephen Forman, Middletown Township Police Lieutenant.

According to CNN affiliate WPVI, there was no issue when the teen first approached the guests to remind them to wear their masks. However, when the employee reminded them for the second time, the guests turned violent.

Having shut down due to COVID-19, the park finally reopened in late July 2020. The park's updated policy mandates that face masks be worn in all public spaces. Failure to comply with this policy will prohibit guests from entering or remaining in the park, states the Sesame Place website. In addition, it states that “Face coverings are required for guests age 2 and older while in the park except as stated here. Guests are not required to wear them while eating and drinking or in designated relaxation areas of the park. Face coverings are not allowed in the water (e.g., the water slides and all other water attractions in the park.”

Police are currently working with Sesame Place to recover their video and reservation forms. Police have yet to identify the assailants or release information on the park employee

Following punching the employee, the guests left with their party, according to WPVI.

It is uncertain if the guests were asked to leave or left without prompting.
