Regarding the Baltimore Assault  

There's no room for violence under the Golden Arches. We strongly condemn the videotaped brutal assault in one of our Baltimore-area franchised restaurants.

First and foremost, our thoughts remain with the victim, Chrissy Polis, as she recovers.


Our franchisee has taken action consistent with his employment policies.


We want to reassure our customers that your neighborhood McDonald's is a safe welcoming place for everyone. We share our customers' concern. We are doing everything possible to make sure the right thing is done.
