A cashier at a McDonald’s on West Fourth Street in Manhattan was captured on video savagely beating two female customers with a metal rod on Oct. 13, 2011.
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - An argument between a cashier and two irate customers at a Manhattan McDonald's turned violent, leaving both customers injured and all three facing charges.
The entire incident, which was captured on video, happened Thursday morning at a McDonald's on West Fourth Street in Greenwich Village, reports our sister station CBS 2.
It appeared to have started when two female customers argued and yelled obscenities at the cashier when he questioned a $50 bill they gave him.
One of the female customers then slapped the cashier. A woman is then seen jumping over the counter while the other woman goes behind the register.
That's when the cashier can be seen on the video disappearing into the back of the fast-food restaurant. He comes back with a metal rod and begins hitting the women.
Other customers watched in horror as McDonald's workers tried unsuccessfully to stop the violence.
One female customer had a fractured skull that required surgery and a broken arm. The other has a deep laceration.
Rayon McIntosh, 31, was arrested and charged with two counts of felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
McIntosh served more than a decade in prison after shooting and killing a high school classmate in 2000. He was being held on $40,000 bail.
The female customers were charged with menacing, disorderly conduct and trespassing.
The owner of that McDonald's said in a statement that she was "disturbed" by what happened and said the cashier is no longer employed there.
