'That behaviour is just disgusting... [If] people have an issue that they cannot resolve with some cordial communication... [at] these retail settings, they should ring the police,' he said.
Officers were reviewing security footage at the store and asked anyone who might have witnessed the incident or have information to contact police.
'There is no room [for] what is a criminal act, to go and spit at a person because you don't like the answer that you got in terms of a face mask issue'.
