Two lesbians were attacked outside of a Pennsylvania McDonald’s bathroom after the manager found them having “sexual relations.”
Customers began to complain to the store’s manager after watching the two women enter the bathroom alone around 5 p.m. on Wednesday. When the manager went to check on the situation, he found the women engaged in sexual intercourse and so ordered them to leave the store.
According to the manager, the women agreed, but they were met with an angry group of seven or eight other customers on their way out. The group verbally attacked the couple, and one of the women was stabbed in the midst of the chaos. She had to be taken to a nearby hospital. Luckily the stab wasn’t fatal, according to reports.
The stabbing suspect is still unknown, but reports from witnesses believe it was a mother who was there with her two children, or perhaps one of the children. Police are currently reviewing the surveillance footage to find out who it was.
In addition to the stabbing, the incident has been labeled as a possible hate crime because of the slurs used by the group of attackers. At least one person said, “Get out of here you dirty dykes,” according to reports.
Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood, however, was less than sympathetic to the victims.
“Everybody should do their own thing but doing it at 5 o'clock in the afternoon in a McDonald's bathroom - whether you're female and female, female and male or male and male - what the f---?” Chitwood told The Daily Delco.
