Teen workers ‘upset’ after Wendy’s man rages against order behind the wheel


Vancouver Island gendarmes are looking for a suspect after a disgruntled fast food customer attacked a service driving Wendy’s this week, frightening the teens inside.

West Shore RCMP said the man tore plexiglass out of the restaurant’s Colwood restaurant window Tuesday night after discovering that staff forgot to put mustard on his burger.

Const. Nancy Saggar said the suspect had already received his order and had parked his vehicle in the parking lot to eat it, when he returned to the drive-through service area and began shouting obscenities at the staff and breaking the window .

“What concerns us most is that the people who work there were all young people,” said Saggar. “You should be able to trust your safety wherever you work, and that just shouldn’t happen. “

She said that no one was injured, but that all the workers were 16 or 17 and that the incident left them “very disturbed”.

The suspect is described as a white man with a reddish-brown beard, driving a blue or gray tailgate.

Not all burgers include mustard

Wendy’s staff said they could not comment on the incident.

According to Wendy’s online menu descriptions, most of the chain’s hamburger offerings don’t include mustard. Police did not specify what type of hamburger the suspect had ordered.

Police say he threw the plexiglass barrier under another vehicle in the parking lot and left.

The suspect is wanted for mischief and inconvenience.

Anyone with information should call the West Shore RCMP non-emergency line at 250-474-2264, or report anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
