Four teenage girls have been arrested after running amok at a Cranbourne McDonald’s, where items were hurled across the store and a staff member injured.
Police from the Dandenong Frontline Tactic Unit arrested the girls after receiving reports the quartet were causing trouble in the store at the corner of South Gippsland Highway on Tuesday 11 February about 10.15pm.
“It’s believed three of the offenders entered the staff area and stole food before a sign was thrown at a staff member, injuring the 23-year-old victims’ ear,” a Victoria Police spokeswoman said.
“Other items were thrown at staff and the store extensively damaged before all four girls ran from the scene”.
The teens were spotted by police and arrested nearby as they tried to run away.
A 17-year-old from Keysborough, and two 17-year-olds and a 16-year-old from Pakenham are currently assisting police with their enquiries.
It is expected they will be charged in relation to affray, criminal damage, burglary and assault related offences.
