An employee at a southeast Fresno McDonald’s was stabbed in the back by a transient Friday, police said.
The 18-year-old female worker at the Kings Canyon Road and Barton Avenue restaurant was rushed to a hospital, where she was in fair condition, Fresno police Lt. Joe Gomez said.
Police do not believe there was any exchange of words between the victim and her attacker before the assault. Gomez said the worker was taking a bag of food out to a waiting car when the man struck.
The victim thought she had been punched and tried to go back inside, when she collapsed in the doorway. A co-worker called for help.
The attacker, described as a Hispanic man in his 20s, is at large and last was seen carrying the weapon.
He was reportedly wearing all black clothing, including a long black jacket with red cuffs extending from the sleeves.
