Baxley, Georgia was the scene of a deeply disturbing confrontation between two customers and a restaurant owner. Qwik Chik owner Jeanette Norris is shown being repeatedly punched by a woman whose male companion then slugged her teenage daughter. The suspects were identified by police as Nathaniel and Latasha Smith (right).
Reportedly, the Smith’s were upset with how their order was handled at the restaurant. Nathaniel Smith ordered chicken and then complained that his chicken was cold and he didn’t receive enough fries. Norris said that she refunded his money but an argument ensued. Norris called the police and told the couple that they were on their way.
After a verbal confrontation, Latasha Smith is shown pummeling Norris. Then Nathaniel Smith is shown delivering a powerful blow to the face of her teenage daughter.
The attack occurred around 3 p.m. Thursday. The sucker punch to the daughter is particularly scary, though she jumps up to try to help her mother. Two women immediately came forward to call police and comfort the daughter.
Both women had to be treated at the hospital and the owner is scheduled to have surgery for her nose. In the meantime, the Smiths are at large and facing warrants for aggravated battery and cruelty to children.
