Atlanta Police say two women threw bricks at an Atlanta Chick-fil-A drive-thru window after being denied indoor seating, which was closed for in-store dining due to COVID-19.

What We Know:

  • A video of the incident, which was shot by employees inside the Buckhead location, circulated widely throughout social media. The video shows a woman pounding on the glass of the drive-through window as employees are startled moments later by a loud crash.
  • According to a police report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the woman walked into the building after being told it was closed due to COVID-19 precautions. Police said the woman got angry and was forced out of the restaurant by staff before she pulled up to the drive-thru window in a white Chrysler sedan. Police released surveillance footage of the incident and are asking the public to help identify the woman.
  • The police report stated that “the female appeared to have left the location however she returned with two more black females in a white Chrysler sedan through the drive-thru window.”

“The females began to scream at the employees at the location, however none of the statements could be remembered by the employees,” an Atlanta police officer said in the report. “The females attempted to climb through the drive-thru window, but (were) stopped by employees.”

  • In the video, the woman is seen picking up an object from the ground and throwing it at the glass. The employees quickly backed away from the windows after locking the doors. “The suspect females started to pick up cement bricks from nearby and throw them at the drive-thru window in an attempt to break the window,” the report said. “The window was not shattered completely, but did have noticeable cracks and damage.”
  • No one at the scene was reported injured, and the women were gone when police arrived shortly after 10 p.m. to take the report. It is reported that the incident resulted in over $500 in damage to the property.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspects is encouraged to contact 911 or Crime Stoppers Atlanta. Callers do not have to give their name or any identifying information to be eligible for the reward of up to $2,000 for the arrest and indictment of the suspect.
