A man who works at a Wendy’s outlet in the United States, Arizona, has been charged with murder after the elderly customer he had beaten died. Fox news said in a report. The attacker has been identified by police as 35-year-old Antoine Kendrick. He is charged with second-degree murder, the outlet said. The incident took place on July 26 when Kendrick punched the 67-year-old man in the side of the head at the Wendy’s outlet in Prescott Valley after complaining about his food.
Police have released the video of Wendy’s employee’s brutal attack. It shows the customer returning to the counter after receiving their order and complaining about the food. As he walks away, the footage shows Kendrick running around the corner and attacking the elderly customer while eating an ice cream.
Police said the impact knocked the man to the ground and hit his head on the ground, causing him to lose consciousness, the outlet said.
“A customer complained about his food order and that’s when the employee, Antoine Kendrick, came out from behind the service counter and hit the customer on the head,” the Prescott Valley Police Department said in a statement.
It further said the client died on August 5, after which a murder case against Kendrick was launched.
The 67-year-old was flown to a local hospital after the attack and remained in critical condition for more than a week.
Kendrick was previously charged with aggravated assault in the incident, but the charge has since been raised to first degree murder. He remains in police custody.
