16-Year-Old Forced at Gunpoint Into a Freezer at Louisiana McDonald’s
A terrifying event for Tenia Hill, a 16-year-old working at McDonald's. Hill was robbed at gunpoint and then forced into a freezer.
Hill was working her shift at the South Claiborne Avenue McDonald's in New Orleans when an armed woman came into the restaurant, robbed the establishment then slammed Hill and the other employees in a freezer.
Hill dialed 911 and her mother, who works at the Orleans Parish Communications District, answered the emergency call. Ironically, her mother should have been off but decided to work late that day.
According to WDSU TV in New Orleans, Hill's mother Teri Clark heard her daughter say, "Mama, please hurry up she's got a gun". Tenia and the others didn't know if they would make it out alive. Hill said she didn't want her mother to have to bury her youngest child.
Clark asked her daughter for a description and assure her authorities would be there soon.
