MANKATO — A customer reportedly slapped a worker after she was asked to leave the Mankato Menards store because she was not wearing a mask.

The assault allegedly occurred on Sunday but was not reported to police until Wednesday, Mankato Department of Public Safety Associate Director Dan Schisel said.

An employee reported being slapped in the face near the store entryway after asking a woman to leave. Menards is requiring all customers to wear face coverings.

A suspect has been identified from surveillance video. But the report remains under investigation, Schisel said, and the suspect has not been charged.
