You can hear the mother trying to console her crying children in the video as they’re being threatened.
The confrontation takes a dangerous turn.
Police say when the mother got out of her car to check on the damage, the irate driver hit her, dragged her 150-feet across the McDonald’s parking lot.
When she was on the ground injured, the suspect got out of her car and punched the mother several times before driving off.
Detectives call that driver violent and dangerous.
If you recognize the suspect, Richmond police say you can contact Detective O. Guzman at OGuzman@RichmondPD.net or 510-672-2493.
