A New York boy got a beating from a woman he didn't know last month over a question of manners.

When 10-year-old Mohammed Almontsire went to pick up a bag from his dad's store in the Bronx, a woman inside the store told him to say "thank you."

Mohammed said he told the woman, "it's none of your business." The woman then chased him, slapped him a few times and punched him. The incident was caught on camera.

The boy said the woman also cursed at him during the attack. His father said he was shaken by the experience.
