Police are looking for a woman who assaulted a teenage employee at a McDonald’s after receiving the wrong breakfast order on Sunday morning, March 18.
The angry customer walked behind the counter and shoved the employee to the ground causing her to hit her head twice, Glendale Police Department said.
The suspect, captured in police CCTV footage wearing a blue shirt, then fled the store.
The woman was angry because she had received sausage instead of bacon in her McDonald’s breakfast sandwich, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
When the woman received her bacon sandwich, she said, “What the [expletive] is this? I didn’t order no sausage biscuit,” and threw the food back at the employee, according to the newspaper.
The store manager apologized and claimed to correct the order. But the woman came inside the restaurant and started yelling, claiming that she still did not get the bacon sandwich.
“I know you people only make two [expletive] cents an hour,” the woman shouted. She got a refund but was still irate.
She then walked behind the counter and continued to argue with the manager, and a 17-year-old female employee tried to intervene.
“She shoved the employee to the ground causing her to hit her head twice and then fled the store,” police said in a Facebook post.
The Journal Sentinel added that the teenager had hit her head on the french fry station and then hit her head on the ground, but didn’t suffer any burns.
The customer then fled the store with a friend.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Glendale Police Department.
In a more extreme case in November, a man threatened a drive-thru worker with a gun after being told the restaurant was out of Egg McMuffins.
According to police, the man took out his weapon and shouted obscenities at a McDonald’s employee at about 3:30 a.m. at a store in the town of Warren, northeastern Ohio.
The driver continued to curse at the employee and drove away with this companion.
