Hangry McDonald’s customer attacks staff with food because tills weren’t working

Police are hunting a hangry McDonald's customer after he hurled food at staff in a dramatic demonstration after the tills stopped working.

The man, who sneakily crept behind the counter to grab some food, is now wanted by the police after they classed the incident as a burglary.

Staff at the restaurant, located at Archer Road, Sheffield, were met with rage after the customer had realised the systems had shut down.

South Yorkshire Police said the man entered the venue at the start of this month at around 12.50am on Tuesday, April 5.

After arguing with staff about being unable to buy food, the man entered the staff only section and began raiding the back room, stealing burgers, fries and other popular foods from the menu.

When confronted, he attacked a member of staff and threw the food at another. He then left in a taxi.

Police now want to speak to the man in the CCTV image as they believe he may hold information that could help them in their enquiries.

The Daily Star previously reported how a massive brawl erupted inside a McDonald's restaurant over a disagreement about a discount voucher in the West Midlands.

A video clip shows staff barricading themselves at the branch located on Warwick Road, Olton, Solihull, as a group of teenagers tried to push their way back inside.

One of the teens said he used a discount to purchase two Filet-O-Fish meals and a milkshake for 77p on April 12.

"We were pushed out with physical force. A manager saw that we had got the food for 77p and he said we were committing fraud.

"They pushed us out and locked the door on us. One staff member also took my friend's phone off him. That's when we went around to the back and everything escalated."

Police confirmed they attended the scene and said there were no arrests.

McDonald's said: "Our restaurant team acted quickly to stop a group of youths from accessing the store via the rear entrance.

"We have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to crime and anti-social behaviour and will assist police with their investigation.”

Anyone with information about the McDonald's food thrower is asked to call 101 quoting crime reference number 14/65856/22.
