McDonald's Cashier Seen Beating Female Patrons With Metal Rod In Harrowing Video

10/17 UPDATE: McDonald's beating suspect seen in prison photo

In a scary confrontation filmed by a diner, a cashier at a McDonald’s in Manhattan can be seen beating two female customers with a metal rod after the duo jumped the counter during a dispute early yesterday morning.

As seen in the above video, Rayon McIntosh, 31, repeatedly struck the women while they were on the ground behind the counter at the McDonald’s, which is across from the famed West 4th Street basketball courts in Greenwich Village.

According to a felony criminal complaint filed against McIntosh, one woman suffered a “fractured skull requiring surgery” and a broken bone in her arm during the assault. The second woman suffered “substantial pain and a laceration,” the complaint notes. 

McIntosh is facing  two felony assault counts and a criminal possession of a weapon charge. The women, who hurtled the counter during a dispute over their food order, have been hit with menacing, disorderly conduct, and trespass counts. One woman can be seen on the video slapping McIntosh in the face.

The criminal complaint, which was sworn by NYPD Officer Danielle Ambrecht, reports that a police review of McIntosh’s rap sheet revealed that he “was previously convicted of Manslaughter.” State prison records show that McIntosh was paroled earlier this year after spending about 10 years in custody.

McIntosh, who is being held in lieu of $40,000 bail, pleaded guilty in May 2001 to fatally shooting a 17-year-old friend outside a Westchester mall (McIntosh’s plea came after a jury deadlocked on murder and manslaughter charges). During his trial, McIntosh testified that he accidentally fired his .380-caliber handgun as he removed the weapon from the waistband of his pants. Along with piercing the aorta of high school student O'shan Litchmore, the bullet struck an eight-year-old boy in the thigh.

McIntosh, who was 19 at the time of the January 2000 shooting, told jurors he reached for his gun while walking to a parking lot where he planned to confront a group of teenagers with whom he had earlier had a confrontation in the mall's food court.
