A woman has been arrested after two teenagers were allegedly assaulted in the McDonald’s in Dundee city centre.

Police and paramedics were called to the chain’s Reform Street restaurant after reports of a disturbance inside.

Witnesses reported seeing emergency services parked outside the eatery.

Sources said that a 15-year-old girl had been injured and was treated by paramedics at the scene.

An eyewitness, who declined to be named, said: “There was one police car and one ambulance in the street.

“It wasn’t obvious what was happening at first. It was all very quiet.

“You often see emergency vehicles in the city centre so nobody seemed too surprised.

“But there were a few people standing outside McDonald’s and looking in, so it became clear something had happened inside the restaurant.”

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Officers attended at McDonald’s restaurant, Reform Street, at about 6.20pm on Thursday in response to reports of a disturbance.

“As a result of inquiries made, a 33-year-old woman was arrested and charged with assaulting two 15-year-old girls.

“One of the girls required medical treatment but neither was badly injured.

“The arrested woman was released from custody and is to be reported in due course.”

No details of the injuries sustained were available as the Tele went to press.

A spokesman for the Scottish Ambulance Service said: “We received a call at 6.24pm on Thursday to attend an incident on Reform Street. We dispatched one ambulance to the scene.”

A McDonald’s spokesman said: “We can confirm that an incident took place in our Reform Street restaurant.

“Police were called and we are currently assisting with their inquiries.”
