09:52 CEST+02:00
A guest at a McDonald's restaurant in Mora in central Sweden had part of his finger severed when the hatch at the drive-thru counter was closed on him on Sunday evening.

"A drunk man approached the restaurant after closing. He was aggressive and unpleasant," said Petra Whitehead at McDonald's Sweden to The Local on Tuesday.

According to the police report, a 22-year-old man drove in to the restaurant late Sunday evening and a member of McDonald's staff slammed the hatch closed on his hand, severing his dangling digit.

"I don't know the extent of the damage to his hand. But it is a police matter now and they will investigate," Whitehead told The Local.

"The manager of our restaurant called an ambulance," she confirmed.

The 22-year-old, who according to the Aftonbladet daily has successfully been reunited with his finger tip, has reported the restaurant employee for assault causing actual bodily harm.
