Police in Santa Ana, California say they're looking for a woman who was caught on video attacking a manager working at a McDonalds restaurant after she was denied more ketchup. 

According to authorities, a woman entered the employee back door to the McDonalds located on North Bristol Ave. in Santa Ana around 11 p.m. on Oct. 27 and began asking workers for some ketchup. 

When the store manager approached the woman and told her she wasn't allowed in the employee area, the woman allegedly became violent and began pushing, punching and choking the McDonald's store manager. Video surveillance shows the woman fighting with the manager, at one point, slamming the manager's head against a drink machine.

The fight continues even as other employees can be seen rushing to help the manager. At one point, the fight moves toward the drive-thru window where one customer can be seen waiting in his vehicle for his order.

At one point, a man in a gray hoodie rushes into the restaurant to restrain the suspect and escort her back out the back door. 

The woman is described as a Hispanic woman with brown hair, approximated 20-25-years-old, dressed in a light pink T-shirt and dark gray pants. Police are asking anyone with any information as to the identity of the suspect to please contact PIS L. Delisle at (714)245-8647 or Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1-855-TIP-OCCS.
