A pregnant Wendy's worker was beaten by two customers while working at the drive-thru window on June 26.

Tori Repine, 19, has been pregnant for 3 months and was riddled with cuts and bruises on her face as a result of the vicious beating.  Her baby is said to be OK, according to KCTV.

Witnesses say the trouble began when a purple Dodge Charger pulled up to the window after making an order, reports WITI.

“She said you forgot to give us our effin’ straws and [Repine] said, ‘No ma’am, they’re in your bag," according to Repine's mother, Heather Salcedo.  

A witness told authorities that she saw Repine being pulled through the window by two black females, while a third person exited the vehicle and began assaulting Repine.  There was reportedly a fourth suspect also present at the scene.

"If you would do something like this over straws and ketchup,” said Salcedo, “I'd hate to see what you would do to somebody if you were really upset."

Fast-food worker Terrence Wise says the situation was all too familiar to him and to other fast-food workers.  He said he has had drinks thrown at him and has seen coworkers get robbed and physically harmed by customers.

According to Salcedo, police were able to get a good description of the suspects, the car, and a license plate number.  No arrests have yet been made in the case.
