A law enforcement source said the victim was with her boyfriend at the McDonald’s. He allegedly got into an argument with one of the men, who left to get his friends.

The group returned to the restaurant to allegedly fight the boyfriend, the source said, but the boyfriend jumped over the counter to get away. That’s when the group turned to his girlfriend and attacked her instead.

The 50-year-old woman didn’t have any connection to anyone involved, but came to the aid of the 22-year-old victim in an attempt to stop her from getting attacked.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for pain, bruising and swelling to her face.
