The worker then slaps the girl and then grabs her hair and hits her head as a scuffle ensues. A security guard escorted the woman out of the restaurant and the worker was taken away by a colleague.
The incident happened in the early hours of Saturday, April 28.
A witness, who asked not to be named, said: ‘From what I could hear, the girl was upset that her and her friends’ order was taking too long so she decided to go behind the counter and get the food herself.
‘After the incident, the worker got taken to the back of the store and the girl was escorted outside by the security guard.
‘The girl was there for a further ten minutes insulting the security guard and causing a scene. Eventually her friends walked off and left her then she followed shortly after.’
McDonald’s have been contacted for comment.
