Milwaukee police are looking for the man who went behind the counter of a south side George Webb Restaurant and punched an employee in the face.
It happened Friday, June 29 — just after 1 a.m. at the restaurant near S. 21st and Mitchell.
Police say the woman was seriously injured and was transported to an area hospital. Police say they are now searching for a known suspect.
Near the end of the video, a George Webb co-worker is seen pointing a gun at the suspect to get him away from the victim.
According to the Alderman Donovan, that employee had a concealed carry permit for the firearm – was successful in getting the suspect to leave the premises.
“One can only imagine what might have occurred if that employee had not pulled out her weapon,” the alderman said. “Sadly, I’m told the co-worker quit her job shortly after the incident.”
“And can you really blame her for quitting? This is just sickening and I am tired of this crap happening in my district and in too many other neighborhoods across Milwaukee,” he said.
