Police seek man who abused McDonalds worker


Police are looking for a man suspected of racially abusing a female worker at McDonalds in Billington Road, Leighton Buzzard.

The incident took place at 7.15am on Wednesday, November 19 leaving her shaken and upset. Now they have released CCTV of the man they’d like to talk to about the incident.



Allan Taylor, investigating, said: “Early Wednesday morning the offender entered the fast food restaurant and ordered some food.

“He then began verbally abusing the woman serving him from behind the counter, making racial and violent comments to her including threatening to knock off or cut off her head.

“The manager then heard the commotion and alerted the police while the man left in a van marked ‘Driveway 4U’.”

The man is described as in his early 20s, short, well built, stocky, thick set and wearing a light blue jumper with paint splashes covering it.

Mr Taylor added: “This was the second time he visited McDonalds that week, he’d been in the previous day (the 18th) and abused staff then as well.

“This is a very serious incident which has left the woman serving in the restaurant very upset and shaken. People cannot just verbally abuse people in this way and expect us to take no action. We want to speak to this person to make him aware of the effects of his rant upon the woman victim.”
