Male suspect allegedly hits three Taco Bell employees in the face

Police arrived at the Taco Bell on North Walnut Street at 2:06 a.m. Saturday morning after employees reported a man had assaulted three of them when he thought his order was taking too long.

The man demanded a refund when an employee came to calm him down. The employee told police the suspect hit him once in the face before hitting him again and knocking his phone to the ground when he started to call the police.

When the employee went to pick up his phone, the suspect stomped on his phone and hand. The man also allegedly hit two other employees in the face when they tried to intervene. The suspect then tried, but failed, to hit a customer in the face.

No one sought medical attention, but all three who were hit in the face complained about pain. One employee had visible injuries.

Police reported that the suspect was a black male in his 20s with long hair and dark clothing. As of now, officers have not located the suspect.
