RICHMOND, CALIFORNIA: On February 5, an alarming event unfolded at a McDonald's drive-thru in Richmond, California. The incident was shared via the cellphone footage of the victim. The video footage shows the victim who is mother of two, being attacked by another woman.

The video shows an unidentified suspect ranting in the parking lot of Macdonald Avenue and 23rd Street around noon. The woman, dressed in what looked like hospital scrubs, accused the victim (mother) of cutting her off in the drive-thru. Only the first name of the victim is known, it is Amaro.

The frightened mother continued recording the entire incident using the camera of her phone as the suspect's rage kept growing like wildfire. The suspect then started throwing objects including a water bottle at the victim's car. The victim was with her sons, aged five and three, in the car. She said, "They were so scared. I was terrified for my children, for myself."

But this is not where the alarming incident calmed down, it only intensified. The Richmond police informed that the suspect had an older male passenger. The scrub-wearing suspect entered back into her car and did the most horrific thing. She rammed her car into the victim's car. Then, the victim stopped recording and got out of her car to prevent the suspect from fleeing. 

Sgt Aaron Pomeroy with the Richmond Police Department said, "The suspect decides to accelerate, strikes our victim with the front bumper." Amaro said, "I was able to hold on to the hood of her car and she drove off with me out of the McDonald's."

Sgt Pomeroy added, "Just before she got to 23rd Street, the suspect hard-braked the vehicle which caused the victim to fall off the hood."

"As I was trying to get up and get my balance back on my feet, she got out of her vehicle and started punching me multiple times. I counted six times in my face, but it could have been more," the victim informed.

The authorities and police think that the Honda car is not owned by the suspect. The car and the owner have been located but the owner refuses to cooperate and share details about the suspect. 

Sgt Pomeroy also added, "We are investigating this as an assault with a deadly weapon because her vehicle was used specifically as a weapon to ram the other vehicle." Amaro confirmed that she is physically fine but still gets nightmares of the horrific incident. She added that McDonald's was a rare treat for her boys but now they are too afraid to go back. 

Richmond Police have urged anyone with information in the case to contact their investigation team immediately.
