LOWER EAST SIDE (PIX11) — Police are looking to speak with a man who was caught on camera violently pushing around a male customer inside a Lower East Side McDonald’s.

A PIX11 News viewer who recorded the scuffle said it began Monday afternoon when the victim allegedly threw food at a woman and the man stepped in to defend her at the fast-food joint on 213 Madison St.

Video shows the man progressively getting more aggressive with the victim and eventually, shoving him to the floor three times while bystanders and even children look on.

The victim, who is in his 30s, was taken to a local hospital where his condition is unknown, police said.

An investigation is underway and police said they are looking into the matter.
