Bloke punched off chair in McDonalds as police release CCTV of sick incident

A police hunt is underway to find a man who punched someone so hard in McDonald's that they fell of their chair.

The sickening incident happened on Saturday, July 16 at the Northbrook Street, Newbury branch of McDonald's.

Thames Valley Police have released CCTV images of a man and two women they are looking for in connection with the horrendous moment.

The attack occurred while the man in his twenties was sitting at a table and eating.

He was approached by “three offenders”, and a verbal altercation ensued.

Somehow, this sparked a brawl and one offender punched the man which caused him to fall backwards of his chair.

He did not require hospital treatment, but did suffer from a black eye.

Investigating officer, PS Richard Tarrant, based at Newbury police station, said: “We would like to appeal to anybody who recognises the individuals in this image to please get in touch.

“You can get in touch by either making a report online or by calling 101 quoting reference number 43220314916.

“Alternatively, for 100% anonymity, you can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”

The attack happened at around 8.17pm, and no further details have been released.

McDonald's has yet to comment on the attack, and the Daily Star has contacted them for comment.

The branch itself is on a public high street, surrounded by shops, a bank and a sushi restaurant.

It does not appear to have in-branch security, according to Google Maps.

Attacks at McDonalds are becoming so frequent, that a branch in Liverpool has now banned all under-18s from entering past 5pm.

The much-loved fast food chain took the decision to refuse unaccompanied under-18s at its Lord Street branch in Liverpool after its employees were subjected to 'verbal and physical abuse'.

The ban is currently temporary, but it is not clear whether it might be extended if antisocial behaviour and violence towards employees continues to be a problem.
