Suspects who allegedly battered a Buckhead Chick-fil-A restaurant with bricks in a pandemic-restriction rage after being denied dine-in service are being sought by the Atlanta Police Department.

APD released surveillance camera videos and images of two women it says were involved in the Jan. 25 incident at the Chastain Square shopping center at 4265 Roswell Road.

According to APD, the incident happened around 8:30 p.m., when employees ordered a customer to leave the fast-food restaurant due to COVID-19 safety restrictions. The woman and several other people threw bricks at the building.
