Police say the assault happened at the McDonald's on the southwest loop in Tyler around 11:56 p.m. on Monday. A black male approached a female employee who was coming outside to deliver food, punched her, took the food, then fled the store heading north.

The suspect is described as thin black male wearing a white tee shirt and orange ball cap. He is approximately 5'7"-5'9" and 140-150 pounds.
