Student claims girls attacked him

A college student says he was sexually abused by two female employees at a local fast food restaurant. Now he says the sheriff's department is not taking him seriously. It's not a claim you hear often -- a man who says he was sexually attacked by women, while just trying to order food. It reportedly happened at a McDonald's in Richmond.

The unusual case started perhaps as flirting that went a little too far. According to the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Department, this case is not being handled as a sex crime, but rather as a pure assault.

Raymond Smith, 20, says he was attacked, sexually harassed and burglarized during a 15 minute dinner at a Fort Bend County McDonalds restaurant.

"I didn't even get to finish my meal," he recalled.

Smith says his attackers were two Hispanic teenage girls, who are employees at the fast food restaurant. One of them is a shift manager. It started as playful flirting.

Smith said, "They threw caramel syrup on my pants."

After that the situation heated up.

Smith said, "(They said) like, 'I wanna have sex with you, I wanna do this to you.'"

At one point Smith says the two girls jumped on him and bit him twice so hard that he went to the hospital.

Fort Bend County Chief Deputy Craig Brady viewed surveillance tapes documenting Monday night's incident. Though he wouldn't show them to Eyewitness News, he says Smith appeared to be having fun.

"They looked like they were enjoying each other's company horsing around in the restaurant," said Chief Deputy Brady.

Smith insists he denied their advances.

He said, "I was telling them to stop, telling them I have a girlfriend."

But when he tried to leave, Smith says the girls jumped in his car, locked the doors and stole some CDs.

"She also undid her pants and as she's going back in the store, her pants are undone on camera," Smith said.

"This is all while they were working," said Barbara Jones, the alleged victim's mother. "This was all while they were on the clock working."

Jones says it gets worse. When deputies arrived at the scene, she says they mocked her son.

"I'm going to be embarrassed if they said that and they won't be working here," promised Chief Deputy Brady.

Deputies all carry recording devices, so if any inappropriate statements were made, it should become evident very soon.

McDonalds issued the statement: "We care deeply about the well-being of our customers and employees, and their safety is our top priority. We are working hard to gather the facts and are fully cooperating with authorities with their investigation of the alleged incident. It would be inappropriate to comment further at this time."
