Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following a racially-aggravated public order incident in Milton Keynes.
At around 6.45pm on Thursday (26/12) a man was unhappy with his order at the McDonalds in Centre MK and approached the tills. Whilst speaking to members of staff, he became abusive and made racist comments towards them and threw sachets at one of them.
The man was removed by members of security and when outside he removed his belt, wrapped it around his hand and made threats towards them.
The offender is described as a white man and approximately 6ft tall. He was wearing a red jacket and jeans.
Investigating officer PC Jamie Day, based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “This incident took place at a busy time as shoppers visited the Boxing Day sales so I believe someone will have witnessed this incident taking place.”
