WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A man angry that he couldn’t get a steak bagel at a Warren McDonald’s restaurant pulled a gun on an employee, police say.

The McDonald’s employee was at the restaurant on Parkman Road when two men came through the drive-thru window around 3:40 a.m. Wednesday. The men were in a black Ford Taurus and appeared to be around 20 years old, the employee told police.

She said the driver pulled a gun out and called her an explicit name when she told them that the bagels were not being sold at that time. The man then drove away toward Coit Street NW, according to a police report.

Police said the incident is one of the most unusual calls they have ever received.

“We have had people upset in drive thru’s before because their orders are messed up, but I don’t remember anyone pulling a gun because they couldn’t get a sandwich they wanted,” said Detective Wayne Mackey.

There was no video from the restaurant security cameras, police said.
