Police: Man attacked for not holding door

BOSTON, April 26 (UPI) -- Boston police said two women attacked a man with their fists, feet, purses and a plate of pasta because he neglected to hold an elevator door for them.

Investigators said Kenyana McQuay, 27, and Waltia Funches, 28, told officers Mohammed Warsame "didn't hold the elevator door open as they walked into the building" so "they had to use their fists, their bags and their feet to teach him a lesson," the Boston Herald reported Monday.


Police said Warsame was also covered in pasta from a plate of noodles the women dumped on him. He told police he tried to fend them off by throwing bottles of water.

The police report described the suspects as "extremely agitated," "uncooperative" and "verbally abusive toward officers."

McQuay and Funches were both issued summonses to appear in Roxbury District Court to face assault and battery charges.
