MANCHESTER, NH (CBS) – Police in Manchester, New Hampshire are looking for the man who threw a glass vase at a hotel worker after she asked him to put on a face mask. It happened on Tuesday, December 8 at the Holiday Inn Express.

The employee said the man was in the lobby when she asked him to put on the mask.
