On February 24, 2019 Hamden Police responded to Kentucky Fried Chicken, 1499 Dixwell Avenue on the report of an assault.
Investigation revealed that a customer was waiting for their food order in the drive-thru lane. Moments later, a black female, 25 years of age, “tall and slim” wearing a black coat “pulled her vehicle” in front of the customer and exited. A verbal dispute ensued. The store manager instructed his 22 year-old employee to “see what the problem” was.
As the employee intervened, the female grabbed her hair and began punching her in the face. The employee suffered several injuries, including injuries to her face, lip and fingers. The female suspect fled from the area in a gold vehicle.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Derick Manning of the Hamden Police Department Patrol Division at (203) 230-4030.
