An angry couple in North Carolina are currently being searched for after they attacked a Chipotle worker after learning that it cost more money to add extra chicken to their order, according to Fox News Digital.
The two attackers in the case are Jamel Williams, 36, and Kayla Pyle, 34. The couple reportedly placed an order at a Chipotle in Charlotte, North Carolina, on December 10. But when an employee told Pyle that it would cost extra to add more protein, an argument was ignited.
The worker — who remains unidentified — was so upset over the altercation that she decided to leave her shift early, around 9:00 p.m. It is not clear what was said between the two parties that resulted in the employee wanting to leave the establishment.
As the employee headed for the door on one side of the dining area, Williams entered from the other side and approached the victim, according to the authorities.
Williams apparently “pushed her to the floor and began hitting her, pulling her hair, and jerking her around,” the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
“I don’t know what was said between Pyle and the victim, but the victim was leaving for home and was chased down from behind by Williams and attacked in the dining room of the restaurant,” Lancaster County Sheriff Barry Faile said.
“The assault was completely unjustified. I hope the victim has recovered from her injuries. I appreciate the help we got from Charlotte Mecklenburg PD to identify Williams and Pyle, and I encourage them to turn themselves in and let the judicial system run its course in this case.”
After Williams attacked the victim, Pyle joined in and struck the victim in the head, according to the police.
Williams and Pyle got away in a Dodge Charger before the authorities arrived on the scene, according to the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office.
The New York Post reported that the victim had suffered injuries, but she sought treatment on her own. The seriousness of her injuries is currently unknown.
It is unclear what the nature of the relationship is between the victim and Williams and Pyle.
Arrest warrants have been issued for Williams and Pyle.
Williams has been charged with Assault and Battery in the first degree, and Pyle face a charge of Assault and Battery in the second degree.
