Armed mob storms Houston Popeyes demanding new chicken sandwich

HOUSTON -- An armed group of people rushed the door of a Popeyes chicken restaurant in southeast Houston Monday night demanding chicken sandwiches.

Houston police were called to the restaurant on Scott Street and Corder just after 9 p.m.

Employees told ABC13, ABC7 Chicago's sister station in Houston, that a mob of two women, three men and a baby were told at the drive-thru that the chicken sandwiches were sold out but that apparently triggered the would-be customers. That is when police said they tried to get inside the restaurant.

One man had a gun, but a restaurant worker was able to lock them out. All the while, the group left the baby inside their black SUV.

No injuries were reported, and police are working on a description of the suspects.
