HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) -The Henrico Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify the people involved in an assault earlier this month at a McDonald’s.

Police say a woman and a man assaulted a drive-through cashier after a bill dispute at the fast-food restaurant in the 2300 block of Mechanicsville Turnpike on Nov. 9.

“It’s sad, it’s really sad, it’s happening at McDonald’s, it’s happening at Popeyes--why can’t we all get along,”explained RayDonna Edwards who lives near the McDonald’s.

The pair got out of their vehicle, police said, assaulted the cashier and then fled the scene in a dark gray Toyota Camry.

“You’re getting out of your car at a drive thru, pulling another human being out of a window that’s working and trying to take care of her family," said Edwards.

On social media, the community has expressed their frustration over the video, some people writing “disgusting.” One person commented under Henrico Police’s post about the video asking how the employee is doing, they wrote back “employee is doing ok. As you can imagine, a frightening experience. Thanks for asking.”

Police say the vehicle had a bent front license plate, a sunroof and damage to the left rear bumper.

Anyone with information is asked to call 804-501-5000 or Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
