Cranky customer’s bizarre attack in drive-through
POLICE are searching for an angry customer who threw a drink at a McDonald's staff member at Mount Pleasant fast food business.
Mackay officers are investigating the alleged assault at a drive-through of a Mount Pleasant takeaway restaurant.
Police said a staff member was finalising an order with the drive-through customer before the incident occurred at 10.37pm on Saturday, May 9.
"The driver is then alleged to have raised an issue with the food order and demanded a free drink, which wasn't agreed to," a police spokesman said.
"It is further alleged the driver has reacted by throwing a beverage into the face and body of the staff member before driving away."
The driver was described as a man with a skinny face, fair skin, in their late 40s, clean shaven and wearing a work uniform.
The vehicle being driven was described as a blue Hyundai.
The victim was not injured but did have some temporary discomfort to their eyes after the alleged incident.
