Man with Chainsaw Chases McDonald’s Employees, Steals Food and Drink
A man has been arrested after entering a McDonald’s restaurant and stealing food before chasing employees with a chainsaw.
The incident occurred at approximately 3:30 p.m. Tuesday at a McDonald’s franchise in Portland, Maine, when the Westbrook Police Department received a report that a male suspect was chasing people with a chainsaw.
According to an investigation by the Westbrook Police Department, the suspect — 26-year-old Alice Sweet of Portland, Maine — entered the McDonald’s with a chainsaw and went behind the counter where employees were actively preparing food. Sweet then reportedly revved the chainsaw intermittently before stealing a drink and some food.
“When the manager confronted the suspect in the parking lot, the suspect began chasing the manager with the chainsaw,” authorities said in a statement on social media. “The suspect also used the chainsaw to damage two vehicles that were at the restaurant.”
