A 19-year-old man has been charged with assault after several people were attacked Saturday afternoon inside a McDonald’s restaurant north of downtown Edmonton.
Police were called at around 3:30 p.m. to the fast food restaurant on 111 Avenue near 106 Street, which is located between Kingsway Mall and the Royal Alexandra Hospital.
Officers found three bystanders holding a teenage suspect on the ground outside the restaurant. Police said the suspect appeared to be intoxicated and had allegedly assaulted approximately eight people inside the restaurant, whom he didn’t know.
Police spoke to three of the eight people believed to be attacked. The other five people left before officers arrived and investigators are asking them to call EPS.
“We’d like to speak to anyone who witnessed this incident,” Const. Douglas MacDougall said.”We also want to ensure that the individuals who had direct contact with the suspect are doing well.”
EMS was called to the scene but no one ended up needing medical attention.
Delaney Quinn, 19, has been charged with eight counts of assault, two counts of assaulting a police officer, mischief, and failing to comply with a probation order.
The Edmonton Police Service continues to investigate.
