Battered: Police hunt fat female who punched takeaway worker

September 29, 2010 | by | 0 Comments

Police were today hunting this overweight woman who got so angry waiting for her fish and chips she PUNCHED a takeaway worker in the face.

The fat female became irate after she was told she had to wait just five minutes for her fried meal at the chip shop in Paignton, Devon.

She was so incensed she tried to grab her money back from the til and then swung a fierce left hook at stunned worker Stephen May, 20.

The tubby customer – thought to be a holidaymaker – then marched out of the shop empty handed.

Stephen’s dad, Adrian, 50, who owns the chippie, says his son wasn’t hurt after being punched on the night of September 2.

He said the woman had lashed out seconds after arguing with his wife Jayne, 48, when she explained her meal would be five minutes.

Stephen said: ”The woman, who we think was a holidaymaker, had argued with my wife about waiting five minutes for her meal.

”She then said she wanted her money back and went behind the counter where she tried to open the till.

”Stephen didn’t know about the exchange between my wife and he customer. He told the woman to stop what she was doing and get away from the till – and that’s when she hit him.

”He was shocked and shaken more than anything else. She left without the takeaway and the money. I think she knew she had been in the wrong.”

A police spokesman added: ”We would like to speak to the woman in connection with an assault in which the fish and chip shop man was punched in the face. She tried to open the till without any luck.”
