Richmond police detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying a woman suspected of attacking a mother and her young children at a McDonald’s restaurant in Richmond.

The incident unfolded at about 12:16 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 5, when the victim driving her children entered the drive-thru at the McDonald’s at 2301 Macdonald Ave, police said.

The suspect accused the victim of cutting in line and rammed her car into the victim’s vehicle, police said.

“When the victim got out of her car, the suspect drove directly toward the victim, striking and dragging her across the parking lot for more than 150 feet before stopping,” police said. “The suspect then got out of the car and punched the victim several times as she remained on the ground, before quickly fleeing the scene.”

Investigators are now seeking the identity of the suspect in what they call an unprovoked attack.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective O. Guzman at [email protected] or (510) 672-2493.
