The suspects pulled the waitress inside the white Dodge Durango above, where they assaulted her, police said
‘The vehicle headed north on Route 42, made a U-turn and was heading south towards Monroe Township, and pushed her out of the vehicle,’ Washington Township Police Chief Patrick Gurcsik said.
The unidentified victim was then able to run back to the restaurant and call police because she didn’t have their cell phone on her.
She was taken to a local hospital where she was treated for bruises to her head, face, neck and a possible concussion. Gurcsik said the waitress was traumatized.
‘As an employee, that makes me feel bad. And mad,’ John Hill told Action News.
‘Oh, this is crazy. This is a family restaurant,’ said Stacie Garris-Oliver of Lindenwold, New Jersey, who dines regularly at Nifty Fifty’s.

The suspects were last seen on Route 42 south near Monroe Township.
‘Do not chase after accused suspects and confront them yourselves,’ said Gurcsik.
Instead, employees are encouraged to take down would-be suspects’ information such as their vehicle’s plate number and any other details they can.
Washington Township Police did not immediately return DailyMail.com’s request for comment on Monday morning.
Anyone with information about the suspects was urged to call police at 856-589-0330 ext 1160 or email tips to Det. M. Longfellow at [email protected]
