Authorities are offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrests of three women accused of throwing bricks at the window of a Buckhead Chick-fil-A after being denied entry into the restaurant’s dining room.

Atlanta police on Thursday released surveillance video that appears to show an employee confronting one of the women as she tried to enter the Roswell Road location Monday night. According to police, the women became irate after being told the dining area was closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The woman is seen leaving the restaurant, but returns moments later with a friend as the two force their way past the employee.

After being ordered out of the Chick-fil-A, one of the women began screaming at the store’s employees, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported. The workers assumed both women left, but told police they pulled up to the drive-thru window in a white Chrysler sedan before trying to climb inside.

“The females attempted to climb through the drive-thru window, but (were) stopped by employees,” one officer wrote in an incident report, adding that the workers quickly locked the restaurant’s doors and windows for their own safety.

What followed was filmed on an employee’s cellphone and later shared on Instagram. In the video, one of the women is seen beating on the closed drive-thru window as masked employees scramble inside.

At one point in the video, a woman outside appears to pick up an object from the ground and throw it at the glass. The employees quickly backed away.

“The suspect females started to pick up cement bricks from nearby and throw them at the drive-thru window in an attempt to break the window,” the report said. “The window was not shattered completely, but did have noticeable cracks and damage.”

No one was injured in the incident, and the women were gone by the time officers arrived to take the report.

Anyone who recognizes the suspects is asked to call 911. Tipsters can remain anonymous, and be eligible for the cash reward, by contacting Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477, texting information to 274637 or visiting the Crime Stoppers website.
