Assault inside Canarsie McDonald’s

McDonald’s workers throw hot water at each other

Brooklyn Daily

Two McDonald’s employees were arrested for dousing each other in hot cooking oil during a fracas in the Canarsie fast food restaurant, this paper has learned.

Police say that Kishana Cox, 26, was arrested on Nov. 9 for drenching a 19-year-old co-worker during an argument inside the Rockaway Parkway eatery between Glenwood Road and Conklin Avenue.

The co-worker, identified as Vernon Forbes, was also arrested for dousing Cox in the bubbling fry fat “without provocation,” according to court records.

Both victims reported burns to their ears and wrists — and a super-sized order of searing pain, police said.

A new manager at the eatery said that neither employee still works at the McDonald’s.

“I don’t think they work here,” she said.

Calls to Cox and Forbes’s lawyers were not returned.
