Police in Milford are searching for a woman they say allegedly assaulted a Burger King employee, shattered the drive-thru window, and started throwing things like sweet and sour sauce because she was upset about her meal.

Authorities were called to the restaurant at 22 Beaver St. around 10:07 p.m. Friday for a report of someone allegedly breaking a window, throwing things, and assaulting an employee, according to a police report.

When police arrived, the assailant had already left, the report said

Officers spoke with a couple of workers, who described the chaotic scene, according to police.

One worker said that the woman placed an order. She then handed the woman her food and took her form of payment at the drive-thru window, the report said.


The woman allegedly began “yelling and swearing” at the employee, saying that her order was wrong. The employee took a photo of the woman to show her manager; the woman allegedly asked for a refund, according to authorities.

“[The worker] went to give the female her money back and she got out of the car, scratched [the worker’s] right arm, and took her money, and began pulling on the drive-thru window as it shattered,” the police report said. “The female then began to attempt to climb through the window and began pushing items in the restaurant over, and throwing things that she could reach i.e. sweet and sour sauce.”

The woman at one point got back in the vehicle and then drove around the parking lot. The vehicle approached the drive-thru window again, and a man got out. After walking around, he allegedly got back in and the vehicle left, according to the report.

Outside, the worker noticed the right side of her vehicle had been damaged, and she thought it was the woman, police said.

Neither of the workers know who the woman is, police said.

Authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying the woman in question. Pending charges include assault and battery, malicious destruction of property over $1,200, disorderly conduct, and disturbing the peace, the department posted on Facebook.
