TEMPLE HILLS, Md. (7News) — Video being widely shared on social media captures an enraged man trashing the counter at the NY Chicken and Grill on Branch Avenue in Temple Hills until a restaurant worker fights back chasing him outside.
A second video shows the man ramming the store in a tow truck. It all happened at about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The damage done is visible. A boarded up hole in the front of the restaurant. A man at the restaurant, in fear for his own safety, not wanting to be identified, told 7News he’s furious.
The man says the attacker came in at closing time. He ordered chicken and waffles. He was served but then demanded wings. When the restaurant manager said it was too late to cook wings the man became enraged and attacked.
“His behavior is just mind boggling you know,” said the man at the restaurant. He said the restaurant worker fought back to protect the staff and other customers.
“We can’t let people get away with these kind of stuff," the man added.
Prince George’s Police are now reviewing store security video and trying to the attacker and the tow truck.
