McDonalds has been hit with more chaos overnight with unruly teenagers taking aim at the restaurant in Melbourne’s Southeast.

Police were called to McDonald’s Cranbourne at 10.15pm after four young girls trashed the restaurant.

Three of the teenagers stole food from the staff-only area before throwing a sign at one staff member who received an injury to the ear.

The four teenagers threw other items at staff before they ran away. They were arrested nearby as they tried to escape the scene.

Three 17-year-olds and one 16-year-old are now in police custody and are likely to be charged with offences including assault and criminal damage.
