Three people who allegedly attacked a McDonald's employee and stole money from the restaurant's cash register were arrested Monday, according to a release.
Police said the three people were recognized by staff members at Ho-Chunk Gaming as being suspects in the McDonald's incident. Staff members called police and the three suspects were arrested.
According to the release, the restaurant manager was burned in a scuffle Jan. 15 after an angry customer ordered two young men to attack him.
The Madison Police Department said Nicole P. Gordon, 39, was trying to get a refund at the Park Street McDonald's Jan. 15 at 4:43 p.m. using a receipt from another restaurant.

Two young men, Travers D. McDaniel, 19, and Julian R. Parks, 21, came in from outside, hopped the counter and knocked the manager to the floor, punched him and tried to hit him with a pot full of coffee, according to the report. The pot broke and splattered hot coffee onto the victim's arm, burning him.
