ORLEANS — Police are looking for a white man who allegedly made racist comments and threatened a Wendy's employee at the drive-through window last night.
Police said a clerk from Wendy's on Canal Road called them around 9 p.m. to say a white man made racial slurs to the clerk at the take-out window. The man, who was apparently frustrated that the clerk could not speak better English, parked his car, got out and walked to the take-out window, Orleans police Lt. Kevin Wells said.
The apparently disgruntled customer then tried to grab or take a swipe at the clerk through the window, but could not get to him, Wells said. The man then got back in his vehicle and drove away.
The clerk was not able to give a detailed description of the suspect's appearance or his car, Wells said.
