A male shopper allegedly stabbed another man and assaulted a security guard after a woman in his company was told to wear a face mask in a shopping centre. 

The 25-year-old man, a woman and two children were in Windsor Riverview shopping centre on George Street in Windsor in Sydney’s north-west when the woman was asked by a security guard to put a mask on at 8:20pm on Tuesday.  

A short time later, the man allegedly approached the security guard, who is a 59-year-old man, and allegedly pushed him before punching him multiple times.   

Another customer, a 53-year-old man, then intervened and a fight allegedly broke out.
