A waitress is recovering after she was savagely attacked at a Fairview Heights, Illinois, restaurant, said police.
On the evening of December 30, 2011, four female black customers entered the Red Lobster at 110 Ludwig Drive, along Interstate 64.
While there, the four women got into a verbal and physical confrontation with a female "white" server, according to several sources.
FOX 2 KTVI claims the trouble started when the waitress mixed up the customers' orders.
"They were belligerent to their server. One of them ended up throwing a full glass of soda in her face and then all four of them attacked her," said Detective Tim Mueller to several St. Louis, Missouri, news stations.
The waitress reportedly sustained "cuts on her nose, a swollen eye, and missed a few days of work".
A woman claiming to be the victim's aunt, said clumps of hair were pulled from the victim's scalp.
Making matters worse, the manager at the Red Lobster let the female attackers go without calling 911, or getting their license plate information, said the victim's so-called relative.
Investigators are still searching for the suspects.
