First impressions can be misleading.
Police have released more details about an assault that took place at a Wendy's drive-thru in Independence, Missouri, on Sunday afternoon where a pregnant female employee, 19-year-old Victoria Repine, claimed she was attacked by two suspects on the other side of the window.
Surveillance footage has been released that shows that the worker was indeed initially grabbed by the two people in the car, but later climbed out of the window herself. The footage directly contradicts both the victim's and a witness's statement to police that she was pulled out by the attackers and fell to the ground.
Police are still looking for the suspects, who were described as two Black females driving a purple Dodge Charger. No further information has been released about the two suspects.
The employee did suffer head trauma, including cuts and scrapes on her scalp and a gash on her face. Doctors also checked on the baby's well-being and have said that there is a heartbeat.
It's not clear if charges have, or will, be filed, but hopefully police will do a thorough investigation of the situation before rushing to judgment.
