A man walked behind a counter and punched a worker in the face at a south side George Webb restaurant.
The attack happened early on June 29 at the restaurant at South 21st and Mitchell streets.
“It is sickening to see this unsuspecting worker assaulted so brutally by this individual,” Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan said.
The woman who was hit had a concussion but is back at the work.
Another worker, who pulled out a gun and pointed it at the man to get him away from the victim, has quit.
“I thank God that the one waitress had a concealed carry and pulled out her gun. I shudder to think what might have happened had she not been able to do that. What this guy would’ve done,” Donovan said.
Police know who the man is but are still looking for him.
Donovan looks at the attack as a symptom of a larger issue citywide. “It’s frustrating because I’ve been saying if we don’t pay attention to some of these neighborhoods that are on the fence, they’re gonna fall the wrong way. And that’s precisely what’s happening,” he said.
Anyone with information about the man’s whereabouts is asked to Milwaukee police at 414-935-7360.
