Rayon McIntosh, a New York McDonald’s cashier used a metal rod to viciously beat two women, who were restaurant customers, during an argument on Thursday morning.
Rayon McIntosh is said that was freed from prison after being jailed for killing a school classmate.
The terrifying attack, which took place at McDonald’s restaurant in Greenwich Village, New York, on Thursday morning, was recorded on a camera by one of the customers.
The video clip shows McDonald’s cashier Rayon McIntosh beating the two women with a metal rod, which he had fetched moments earlier from the back of the restaurant.
Minutes before the attack, the two women appear to provoke the cashier, swearing at him and getting behind the counter, after Rayon McIntosh questions a $50 note they have given him. After beginning the assault, the cashier’ stunned colleagues try in vain to restrain him.
One of Rayon McIntosh victims required surgery after suffering a fractured skull and a broken arm and the other required hospital treatment for a gash.
Rayon McIntosh, who is said to have spent a decade in jail after shooting dead a high school classmate in 2000, was arrested and charged with two counts of assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
Rayon McIntosh is now being held in police custody on $40,000 bail.
Police say that the two women have been arrested too, on charges, including menacing.
McDonald’s representatives were available to comment.
