Wendy’s Worker Faces Second-Degree Murder Charges After Fatally Punching Elderly Customer


A Wendy’s employee in Arizona has been arrested for fatally punching an elderly man in the head.

Wendy’s worker Antoine Kendrick is looking at second-degree murder charges after he punched a 67-year-old man in the head on July 26. The incident took place at a Wendy’s location in Prescott Valley around 4:45 p.m. when the man came into the establishment.

Video footage captured the older man going back to the counter to complain about the food he’d received. At some point, Kendrick then walked from behind the register and punched the older customer. The man immediately fell to the floor.

“A customer complained about his food order, at which time, the employee, Antoine Kendrick, came out from behind the service counter and struck the customer in the head,” reads a police statement, according to AZ Central.

After collapsing, the man lost consciousness, Fox News reports. He was then airlifted to a local hospital, where he remained in critical condition for ten days. The news outlet reports that he was pronounced dead on Aug. 5.

Kendrick is still in custody after being arrested on aggravated assault charges.
