Police in Fairfax County are looking for a suspect in a vicious attack at a McDonald's restaurant drive-thru.

One teenager is already in custody, and now the victim is speaking is out.

"It happened so fast," says 27-year-old Rakia Parker. "It was boom, boom, boom ... like a punching bag."

Parker says she was grabbing a snack, heading home from a friend's house at a McDonald's restaurant on Richmond Highway in Lorton around 1:45 a.m. Thursday when two men attacked her.

She says three men were standing at the drive-thru window, blocking her way.

"So I beeped the horn twice and said, 'Excuse me. Can you move?"' Parker says. "He cussed at me and said he wasn't moving. I said, 'This is a drive-thru, not a walk-through.' So he walked past my car. As he walked past my car, two of them just started punching me through the window all up the side of my face. The whole time he was punching me, he said absolutely nothing."

She says the third young man eventually grabbed the other two, pulling them away from her. She saw two of the men run off.

"I got out the car and blood was just coming from my nose, my mouth, everywhere on me," says Parker.

She says she called 911 from her cell phone.

"That's when I walked around the side of my car," she says. "(A) lady said, 'Ma'am, he's in front of your car.' I looked at him and he was passed out."

That was Daniel Kim, 18 years old, arrested and charged with assault and being drunk in public.

Parker went to the hospital with a broken nose and fractured cheek bone.

"This is ridiculous," she tells us. "Something has to be done."

The attack was apparently caught on surveillance video, which is now in the hands of investigators who are trying to track down the two men who were with Daniel Kim Thursday morning.

The owner of that McDonald's franchise sent FOX 5 News the following statement:

"I care deeply about the safety and security of my customers. My organization is fully cooperating with authorities in their investigation. As this is an ongoing investigation, it is inappropriate for me to comment further.

Our focus will continue to be on serving our customers and providing them a safe and welcoming experience."

Believe or not, this is completely legal in New York City.
