— A Rock Hill woman waiting at the McDonalds drive-thru with her five children told police a man yelled at her before dousing her with pepper spray on Saturday.

Police at about 8:45 a.m. spoke with the woman, 31, who said she was assaulted while at the McDonalds on Dave Lyle Boulevard, a Rock Hill police report states. She told authorities that a man got out of his Mitsubishi Gallant and began yelling and shouting profanities at her.

She got out of the car to speak with him when he pepper sprayed her, the report states. The man then got back into his car and left.

Though she told her police her eyes were burning, she followed the car to Belleview Road, the report states. The people inside the car drove into a driveway but did not get out of the car.

The woman’s car contained an orange/brown substance on the front passenger’s side and the windshield, the report states. The woman’s eyes were swollen, but she refused to be treated by paramedics, saying she would receive treatment later.

A McDonalds manager told police there is no surveillance cameras in that part of the drive-thru and none of the employees mentioned the incident, the report states. Police tried to track down the Gallant’s registered owner, a woman, but were unsuccessful.
