California, allegedly caught on a surveillance video last month, who attacked a McDonald's employee after she didn’t get enough ketchup, was arrested, said Wednesday.
Mayra Bernis Gallo, 24, was taken into custody at a police station in her Santa Ana home on Tuesday. Police received a lot of advice from the public, Cpl. Anthony Bertagna told the OC Register. Police released a video of the incident, which they said showed on October 27 the suspect in McDonald's and became furious.
“She didn't get her ketchup, or enough,” Bertagna said in the newspaper. “A staff member in the back (of the restaurant) told her that he could not get inside, but she did. She was on a mission.
Gallo ordered food through McDonald's before entering the back door of the restaurant used by staff so she could ask for ketchup, Santa Ana police said. A staff member told Gallo that they would be “happy” to help if she went to the front of the restaurant, but instead the 24-year-old “became militant,” police told KABC-TV.
Officials said she "pushed, hit, and suffocated." Video surveillance, allegedly, shows that Gallo slams a worker’s head into a beverage machine.
While other employees tried to intervene, only when an unknown man believed that the suspect entered the restaurant, which the woman had left, police said.
Gallo was accused of suspecting an assault on the Santa Ana Police Prison, police said.
“There is no reason to physically attack someone because you have not received enough ketchup,” said Bertagna to KTLA-TV.
