BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WXYZ) — Battle Creek police are investigating after a man said he was assaulted after making fun of another man's makeshift mask.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports that the 57-year-old victim was in his home around 7 p.m. Monday when the suspect came to his home reportedly wearing thong underwear over his face, presumable as a makeshift mask.

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

The Battle Creek Enquirer says the suspect left, but returned about 45 minutes later, came into the house and struck the victim in the side of the head. They wrestled, and the victim fell to the floor and told police he was kicked in the ribs.

Police were unable to find the suspect.
