OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities said a fast-food worker in Oklahoma City was simply trying to be kind when the worker was violently attacked.

Just before midnight on Monday, officers were called to the Sonic near N.W. 23rd St. and Pennsylvania Ave. on an assault and robbery.

Officers learned that 28-year-old Briana Lee had ordered food, but her card continued to be declined.

Workers at the Sonic decided to give Lee the food for free.

A short time later, Lee pushed the button and asked a carhop to come outside with some napkins.

Authorities with the Oklahoma City Police Department said without provocation, Lee allegedly sprayed the victim with mace, threw the carhop down and kicked her in the ribs.

At that point, police said Lee stole the carhop’s apron and cash.

Officials were able to track down Lee and took her into custody.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment but is going to be okay.

Lee is facing charges of assault and battery and first-degree robbery.
