KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) — Deputies say a 21-year-old woman and her 61-year-old father were hit in the head with baseball bats after warning a group of college-aged people gathered on a beach about social distancing due to coronavirus.
The incident happened Saturday evening on Wisteria Island, which is off Key West.
Monroe County Sheriff's officials said in a news release that the group arrived on the island in three center-console boats.
The woman didn't know how many people hit her, but she had a large lump on the back of her head. Her father was also injured.
Deputies are investigating.
