An unhinged employee at a Bronx Burger King hissed at a customer, making hand gestures like she was casting a curse on him, then attacked a coworker in a bizarre caught-on-video clash.
Videos posted on Facebook shows Marie Rene, 48, of Mount Vernon, wildly opening and closing the door of the Burger King on Boston Road at Eastchester Road in Williamsbridge about 8 p.m. Tuesday.
When a patron tried to stop her, she yelled ‚”Stop! Stop! Stop! Don’t touch me!” then started snaking her hands in the air as if she was casting a hex on the man.
She then jumped the counter and ran into the kitchen, only to re-emerge and attack a fellow employee sitting down at a table, the video shows.
More footage shows Rene pulling the woman’s hair, while another woman tries to separate them, screaming, “Get off of my sister! Get off of my sister!”
“She’s possessed, yo,” one woman said right before the attack.
Police officers broke up the fight moments later and charged Rene with attempted assault. She was issued a summons to appear in court at a later date.
“Don’t touch me! Don’t touch me!” she repeatedly told a police officer, who responded, “Relax, unless you want to get Tased. Relax.”
A manager at the Burger King refused to comment Monday and told each of the store’s employees to keep quiet before hiding in a cupboard to avoid a reporter.
