According to the BBC According to the report, at least 50 youths between the ages of 14 and 16 piled into the Clumber Street outlet at about 9 p.m. local time.
While seven of these teens jumped over the counter to grab the food being prepared, others filmed the act on their phones, the outlet said.
Police later said in a statement that about 20 of them assaulted and threatened McDonald’s staff.
They later said the gang attacked another outlet in Milton Street, Nottingham, about an hour later “but left the scene when officers arrived”.
“We are treating this incident very seriously. This is a commercial break-in when the group forced their way behind a business counter and stole food and soft drinks. It is completely unacceptable,” a Nottinghamshire Police spokesman said in a statement.
Last month, a woman climbed through the window of one of McDonald’s stores into the kitchen and made her own food after staff refused her order.
The clip was first posted on TikTok and later appeared on other platforms. It showed the woman trying to “train” herself by joining the staff at the fast food restaurant and preparing a takeout order for herself. The video has gone viral and many users wanted to know if she managed to get food.
