A young woman bludgeoned by an ex-con McDonald’s cashier during an argument could have permanent brain damage, her angry mother said Monday.
Denise Darbeau, 24, has been hospitalized since Thursday’s violent clash in Greenwich Village, and her prognosis is unclear.
“She has memory loss. She’s been heavily sedated. The doctors say it’s too early to tell,” said Darbeau’s mother, who declined to give her name.
Mickey D’s employee Rayon McIntosh, 31, used a metal bat to beat Darbeau and pal Rachel Edwards after they jumped behind the counter during a dispute over a $50 bill.
McIntosh is on parole after serving 10 years for manslaughter for shooting and killing a 17-year-old classmate in 2000.
Darbeau’s mother said her daughter was unarmed and didn’t deserve the beating, some of which occurred while she was helpless on the floor.
