She explained they didn't hear the employee that called them when their order was ready. The employee, later identified as Carter, began yelling and cursing at them for not picking up their order on time.

That's when an unknown woman approached them and threatened the group. Documents say that when the group tried to leave, an unknown man attacked one of the male victims.

During the fight, the victims tried to get back in their car to leave, however Carter, the unknown woman and the unknown man followed them, opened up the doors and continued assaulting the victims.
