An Arizona man is facing assault charges after hitting a Wendy’s restaurant customer, knocking him unconscious.
According to AZ Family, security footage from a Prescott Valley Wendy’s restaurant shows 35-year-old Antoine Kendrick, identified as a restaurant employee at the time, taking a 67-year-old man’s order on July 26. When the customer complained, Kendrick walks around the counter and sucker punches the man as he was licking a Wendy’s Frosty.
The victim fell to the ground after the punch landed on his head. He was rushed to an area hospital where he’s reportedly in critical condition.
“Oh, wow that was a pretty hard hit. That was a Mike Tyson hit,” a customer said. “The customer didn’t touch him, so he had no right to touch the customer, period, end of story.”
I just think that’s horrible and wish it didn’t happen. It puts a bad light on our entire society.
Kendrick was ultimately arrested and charged with one count of aggravated assault.
