A Battle Creek man allegedly assaulted someone who made fun of his makeshift coronavirus mask made out of thong underwear.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports that the bizarre scene unfolded at a home on Lakefront Drive about 7 p.m. Monday.

According to the 57-year-old victim, the 47-year-old suspect came to his home while wearing the undergarment over his face, apparently as protection from COVID-19:

The victim told the suspect it looked like the thongs laying around the victim's house, which upset the suspect.

The suspect then left, but returned 45 minutes later and allegedly struck the victim in the head. The two wrestled, causing the victim to fall to the floor, who then said he was kicked in the ribs.

Police say they were unable to find the suspect; a warrant is being sought.
