Disturbing video footage shows teenage girls throwing objects at staff at a McDonald’s outlet after being asked to leave a children’s’ play area.

The incident lasted for a number of minutes after a mother asked the girls to leave a children’s play area at the restaurant
The girls then challenged the mother to fight them but when she refused they began throwing cups of water at her.
However they subsequently began throwing drinks, shoving items off the counter and throwing cups at people at the service counter.
Her father then chased the group outside and held onto one of the girls while he called the police. At that point, the victim said she ran out and told him to let the girl go.
The mother, who did not wish to be named, told CBS News: ‘They were punching me the whole time.
‘They kept wanting to fight me, they all started hitting me and my two little girls were crying. My dad realized that they were on me and he pulled me away’.
Police said the teens caused about $1,000 in damage before they took off and they have yet to be found.

The mother was treated at a local clinic for minor injuries.
A store employee Dexter Forbes Jr said the girls broke a monitor during the fight that quickly escalated.
He told CBS Los Angeles: ‘I was about to get hit in the head. They were throwing them pretty high too, like they had no aim.
The woman asked a manager for help twice before another man in a black sweater stepped in between and got them behind the counter.
‘He was doing way more work than my manager was. He was making sure they were okay, he walked to the back with them’, Forbes added.

Forbes said the manager called the police but he was kept on the line for an extended period of time.
After he posted several videos to social media, he was allegedly suspended and later fired.
In a statement to CBSLA, McDonald’s said on Tuesday night: ‘The safety and security of our guests and their families are a top priority.
‘We have been in contact with the local law enforcement and are fully cooperating with their investigation’.
The unidentified mother is hoping someone will recognize the girls in the video, which was viewed on Facebook over 56,000 times.
