A staff member at a branch of McDonald’s in Boston suffered minor injuries after being allegedly punched in the face and arm by a man.

The incident happened at the Queen Street restaurant after closing at around 12.51am on Sunday, July 25. Police say the man was asked to leave by a member of staff before attacking the staff member.
