Lesbian Couple Attacked At Philadelphia McDonald's After Allegedly Having Sex In Bathroom

While a McDonald's bathroom isn't the classiest place to take a date for sex, no one deserves to get attacked and stabbed for it.

But, that's exactly what police said happened to two women after they were allegedly caught in the middle of a romantic tryst at a Philadelphia-area McDonald's by some less-than-tolerant customers Wednesday afternoon.

Upper Darby, Pa., police superintendant Mike Chitwood told CBS Philadelphia that the restaurant's manager asked the two 23-year-old women to leave after finding them ”in a bathroom and engaged in some type of sexual activity.”

As the women exited, they reportedly exchanged heated words with seven other customers. The quarrel escalated when the crowd followed the women out of the restaurant, according to Consumerist. Someone in the gang of irate patrons allegedly stabbed one of the women in the shoulder with an unknown object.

Chitwood told the Philadelphia Inquirer that at least one attacker yelled derogatory language at the women, telling them, "Get [out] of here, you dirty dykes."

Police believe that the alleged stabber in the attack was a 40-year-old mother of two. She is thought to have instigated the attack. No arrests have been made as of Friday morning, but Chitwood told the newspaper that investigators are reviewing surveillance footage in order to identify the suspect.

The stabbing victim was treated at an area hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, according to CBS.
