Video Shows Violent Confrontation Between 2 Customers, Cashier At Manhattan McDonald’s

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An argument  between a cashier and two irate customers at a Manhattan McDonald’s turned violent, leaving both customers injured and all three facing charges.

The entire incident, which was captured on video, happened Thursday morning at a McDonald’s on West Fourth Street in Greenwich Village, CBS 2’s Chris Wragge reports.

It appeared to have started when two female customers argued and yelled obscenities at the cashier when he questioned a $50 bill they gave him.

One of the female customers then slapped the cashier. A woman is then seen jumping over the counter while the other woman goes behind the register.

That’s when the cashier can be seen on the video disappearing into the back of the fast-food restaurant. He comes back with a metal rod and begins hitting the women.

Other customers watched in horror as McDonald’s workers tried unsuccessfully to stop the violence.

One female customer had a fractured skull that required surgery and a broken arm. The other has a deep laceration.

Rayon McIntosh, 31, was arrested and charged with two counts of felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

McIntosh served more than a decade in prison after shooting and killing a high school classmate in 2000. He was being held on $40,000 bail.

The female customers were charged with menacing, disorderly conduct and trespassing.

The owner of that McDonald’s said in a statement that she was “disturbed” by what happened and said the cashier is no longer employed there.

    The girls attacked the employee. The employee defended himself. McDonalds should sue the two women attackers.

  2. BKBORN says:

    He should be released. They got what they deserved. Play tough and get it. There are a lot of bullies and a**holes out there that just don’t know when to quit. They think being hard means running your mouth and jumping people. He did his time. He was trying to earn a living. And I don’t want to hear “But they were women.” He tried to get away from them. He gave them the chance to stop. Even though he should have stopped sooner I still say Self-defense. To hell with the loud mouth bulllies. FIGHT BACK!!

    Good for him! I’m from Boise and if these two bee-otches did this there, they’d be laying in a pool of blood and the employee would be commended. As he should be. They should be charged with felony assault and attempted murder and this guy promoted to Manager. SHAME ON CBS! You lie like our current Prez!

      The Mets could’ve used his swing!!!

  4. zoo keeper says:

    Are you kidding CBS? Portraying this fast food worker as a criminal? He has my admiration and appreciation. You want some fries with this can of Whoop Ass? Ok Here You Go!

  5. Mikel says:

    I bet you that this two woman are not voting for Herman Cain. They are Obama voters. Where the Reverends to boycott McDonalds? Imagine if the ex-convict had been a white man: Rev. Al would outside the MCDS waiting to get a “donation”.This ghetto rats got what they deserved. But they’re not to upset because they just won the ghetto lottery.

  6. Barry says:

    Very Poor reporting.

    I will no longer watch your channel, or any shows on it. Your bent ideology has twisted your reporting skills.

    Shame on you!

  7. sly says:

    Black on Black lol. I’M LOVIN IT

  8. Bill Jones says:

    Looks like self defense to me. The 2 females were the aggressors..

  9. Horton says:

    I love how the first thing you see in the video is the guy whacking the violent offenders….Nope, no bias there at all.

    That would be kind of like telling the history of WWII and just saying “America landed at Normandy and marched into Germany and destroyed it. America is obviously violent aggressors!”

  10. Betty Barclay says:

    Typical Democrats just behaving the only way they know how. Ah, the useful idiots – Micheal Moore must be SO proud of his followers.

  11. Laae says:

    Yeah I agree, the slant here is horrible. Then they include a video so we can all see how horribly they botched the story title? I don’t understand that.

    I think the guy took the beating to far, he didn’t have to keep hitting them once they were down, and he should pay for that, but this wasn’t even remotely unprovoked, they attacked a worker then jumped the counter and came after them.

    1. Pinkie says:

      I agree with you, but there was a pause in the beating, I think one of them was trying to get up, so the beating resumed. Everyone thinks they are better fighter than the other, NEVER UNDERESTIMATE YOUR OPPONENT. Nowadays there is so much evil out there, is like the jungle, kill or be killed. This man will get off he is already tried by the press and found innocent by the bloggers of his peers.

      1. Joseph from Bklyn says:

        They were still talking isht while they were on the ground and that’s why he whacked them again. When they were down on the ground they could of found something to throw in his face to get the upper hand. They were dirty enough to climb behind the counter.

        After watching the original clip on Youtube, the Mets should hire this guy, they need a good slugger.

  12. us395 says:

    At least he was wearing his sanitary gloves.

  13. Tom Troll says:

    Obama voters in action. They hoped for change, all they got was chained.

  14. john smith says:

    JUST MORE CBS PROPOGANDA! You are dispicable liars. If they took it to court and I were on the jury, I would find the MacDonalds Employee NOT GUILTY! It’s time the baboons learn there are consequences to their actions.

  15. BD says:

    What in the hell is wrong with this world? The woman slapped him, and came behind the counter, are we supposed to think she had good intentions? Those who were beaten got what they deserved, the cashier should be prompted, not arrested, what BS.

  16. psadie says:

    Are you kidding me? If I was slapped I would have choked her. Who in the hell do they think they are that they can slap and attack another person? He was clearly defending himself and they got what they deserved only he should have hit them harder.

  17. Trevor says:

    You slap me and then you and your buddy come around the counter and you deserve everything i can throw, punch and whack you with. Kudos to the cashier who has a job and trying to make a living.

  18. American says:

    It was self defense…he had every right to defend himself…those women were thugs!

  19. billyraybob says:

    Did they ax fo a Big Smack?

  20. Rockfarmer says:

    CBS= Crap & Bull Sheet!

  21. Mr. Cellophane says:

    What do they mean “Other customers watched in horror as other McDonald’s workers tried unsuccessfully to stop the violence.”? It seems like after he gets in those final two whacks, his coworker touches him on the arm and says “Hey, that’s enough.” and he stops.

    Also, did no one notice these women were about to commit destruction of property? They walked back there and started whaling away on one of the machines. How do you know they don’t have a weapon? Maybe even a gun? Obviously, they are violent and have a short temper, so this dude was perfectly right in doing what he did, you have no idea what those two women would have done if someone hadn’t stopped them.

    Jesus, sensationalism reporting. The guy was 100% in the right. It’s like they say: If you force your way into my home with violent intents, your life is in my hands. Likewise at the workplace, if someone comes at you violently, you have every right to strike back however hard you want.

  22. Frank Lee says:

    Very, very sad.

    I hope McDonald’s will make things right and promote Mr. Rayon to store manager. As for the apes, they are lucky to be walking around upright.

  23. Sharpton says:

    Someone in editing is overpaid and unqualified.

  24. French Fry says:

    LOL those nappy headed ho’s saw those other McDonald’s vids and thought they’d get them some too.
    YUP, they did.

  25. Lee says:

    He shot and killed somebody just 11 years ago, and is out on the streets?!? How is that possible?!

    Regardless, these women pretty well asked for what they got.

    1. Wonder Pony says:

      There are no details on that. It could have been “involuntary manslaughter” for all we know. Of course, with CBS’ reporting on this story how can we even believe that the earlier crime ever happened?

    2. Angus Young says:

      He was 19 and pulled the gun out of his waistband and accidently shot his friend and killed him. It was not what they made it sound like. The jury ended up in a hung jury and the prosecuters came back with a plea bargain.

  26. Robert says:

    What gives the two females the right to slap, then jump over and around the counter to attack the cashier? As far as I’m concerned , he had all the right in the world to protect himself. They got what they deserved!

  27. Jerry Pomeroy says:

    I’m bettin’ it will be awhile before those two “ladies” pull a stunt like that again. Good for the employee. We’re all safer because he put a whippin’ in them.

  28. Tom says:

    Plainly self-defense. He’s the victim, not the trash on the floor.

  29. Paul Begala says:

    Ni ggers … they’re the reason Africa is Africa.

    1. Rourk says:

      Your racism is the reason you are you.

      The reason Africa is Africa is because European nations as well as the US destabilize any good government that ever comes into power there that actually looks out for their people. They do this so they can rape that continent of it’s resources. Colonialism is alive and well. It just became unwise to actually call it what it is some decades back.

  30. Malcolm says:

    Self defense against two psychos is now a violent assault against customers? CBS you are unbelievable. How many times (99 to 1) do casheirs get shot in the head by freaks, and finally when a couple of violent female gangsta thugs get what’s coming to them we get treated to a bunch of liberal spin that’s against people defending themselves.

  31. cooldude9366 says:

    I’ll tell you exactly what will happen. The girls will sue for 10 million each, cause McDonald’s has deep pockets. Some DUMB jury will find McDonald’s 10% at fault and the girls will get a cool million each. The verdict will be reduced on appeal, but the girls will still learn that crime pays.

  32. workingman1 says:

    Absolutely right.
    How many times do we have to watch employees being assaulted by these thugs?
    Finally, someone steps up to defend themselves and liberal CBS cries foul.

  33. Ferrell Aepps says:

    Silverback versus Sheboons. They are some dangerous primates.

  34. The Facts says:

    This was clearly self defence on the part of the cashier. His record has no relevance to this case. He should not be prosecuted by the New York County District Attorney.

  35. jojo says:

    he needs some counselling but he is not the aggressor here.

  36. John L says:

    McDonalds better stand by their man. That employee did absolutely nothing wrong, and no telling what sort of violence he protected his co-workers from. You reach across the counter & slap someone, you got a slap coming back. You jump over the counter, guess what… now you’re in the lion’s den. Expect to get bit!

  37. matt says:

    His past is irrelevant and inadmissable in court. Self defense Not guilty plain and simple

  38. Will says:

    Loss all respect for CBS news. The employee was right for defending himself.

  39. Ron says:

    So WHY was the worker arrested? He was just defending himself against multiple attackers. I hope I get on his jury……

  40. Brad Donald Lannon says:

    the only savage and gruesome thing about all of this was the reporting.

  41. Frank Lee says:


  42. fish freek says:

    I Said NO Frys for You!!!!!! NEXT !!!!!!!

  43. Chippy55 says:

    You want fries with that club? Ha ha, government statistics state that one in 4 black men will perish from gun shot wounds, every night on CBS news they lead off with a shooting in a black neighborhood. That’s what they do in the ‘hood if you diss them, just stay out of the ‘hood and home school your kids.

  44. David says:

    I would love to be on that jury. I would sent these low life animals to prison. This cashier had a total right to defend himself from these animals.

  45. lou says:

    Who knew oerdering a Big Mac was a contact sport.

  46. Tom says:

    Looks like self-defense to me. He should have killed both of them.

  47. Edward Gordon says:

    disgusting slant of what happened! He was attacked and was protecting himself albeit over protecting but I can not blame him

  48. George says:

    Good for that cashier, but it’s those last few extra whacks that’ll get him in trouble.

    Some people need a good crack or two in the head. Or five.

    They had it coming.

  49. Will says:

    CBS is pathetic, what would they prefer the clerk do, stand there and get beaten. Insane. CBS should apologize personally to the clerk.

  50. Shaniqua says:

    Was it determined if the $50 was actually counterfeit?
