Three Juveniles and One Adult Charged in Fight at Local Restaurant

For Immediate Release:  April 2, 2019


On April 1, 2019, an investigation into a melee inside a local McDonald’s restaurant led to criminal charges for three juvenile females and one adult male.

On March 30 at 12:29 am, patrol officers responded to the McDonald’s located in the unit north block of Arkansas Avenue for a report of a large fight with pepper spray being used.  The altercation had ended and the suspects had left the restaurant before the arrival of the first officers. 

Restaurant employees reported that a group of three females and one male entered the store.  One of the females went behind the counter and began to assault an employee.  A second juvenile female jumped on top of the counter and began to spray a security officer in the face with pepper spray.  Each of the four suspects damaged McDonald’s property during the altercation and engaged in threatening and violent behavior. 

Ambulance personnel responded to the McDonald’s to assist employees and customers with any medical or breathing issues due to either being assaulted or from the pepper spray.  Medical treatment was refused, and no one was transported to the medical center. 

An investigation conducted by detectives of the Street Crimes Unit led to the filing of criminal charges.  Detectives reviewed surveillance camera coverage from the restaurant as well as a viral video that circulated on the internet and social media.  Through the investigation, and with assistance from the public, detectives were able to identify the four suspects.
