McDonald’s staff attacked with pepper spray

VicPD search for male teen suspect

Two McDonald’s employees ended their night shift in rough shape after they were pepper sprayed in the face by a male teen Saturday just before 1 a.m.

The employees were outside the restaurant on Hillside Avenue when the suspect, who appeared to be 16 or 17 years old, came up to them.

“The assault was unprovoked and appeared to be random in nature,” said Victoria police Const. Mike Russell.

The suspect is described as a white male, five-foot-six, 160 pounds with light brown hair. He was wearing a brown and orange jacket and blue jeans. A police canine team was unable to track the teen.

Anyone with information is asked to call VicPD at 250-995-7654 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
